Henriot Brut 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

This is an elegant, medium-bodied Champagne with complex floral tones and good yeast, intensity on the palate, and a crisp, clear finish with good acid. It is bright gold, with toasty pear and apple aromas, a thick and lively texture. The long finish offers an exceptional maple tone.

16th century : The Henriot family settled in Champagne. 1794 : Nicolas Simon Henriot, from a bourgeois local family who had been in the cloth business since the 16th century, married Apolline Godinot, niece of the Abbé Godinot, an eminent scholar whose work had contributed to advances in viticulture. This marriage sealed a fruitful family alliance which was to give birth to champagne Henriot. 1808 : The House of Henriot was officially founded by Apolline Henriot, widow of Nicolas Simon Henriot. She undertook the task of making available the very private Champagne Henriot in her father's vineyard in Bouzy and sold her wines under the name "Veuve Henriot Ainé". The House cultivates a very particular style, valuing time, patience, and the pursuit of perfection. It chooses the best wines from the best "crus", demanding the most careful work from the vineyard and cellar workers. The family’s knowledge of the terroirs and blending skill makes the wines of Champagne Henriot regognizable among all others. The style : Champagne Henriot is commmited to offering wines with a strong personality centered around the family’s philosophy of wine making. Read less

Perliger, vinöser Champagner. Sehr "süffig" und kribbelig im Hals. Gutes Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis!

For all you Veuve Clicquot lovers out there, this Champagne is far and away superior. . . and also much harder to find, but if you find it buy it and rejoice. It's softer and rounder than Veuve, and far more elegant. Hints of white each and and other bright stone fruit.

The colour is characterised by a brilliant light straw-gold. Effervescence is dense and persistent, with fine, regular bubbles. Initially the nose is precise, expressive and refreshing, with notes of citrus and yellow fruit; floral fragrances (vine flowers, elderflowers) and pastry aromas (brioche, toast, grilled almond) follow. A lively, fresh and balanced attack, with pastry, spice (vanilla) and fruity (morello cherry, candied plum) notes on the palate. The full texture precedes a clean, refreshing finish marked by citrus fruit aromas.

Dichtes, anhaltendes Aufschäumen mit feinen, regelmässigen Bläschen. Im Geschmack ausdrucksstark und erfrischend, mit Noten von Zitrusfrüchten und gelben Früchten, blumige Aromen von feinem Gebäck. Im Gaumen lebhafter, frischer und ausgewogener Auftakt mit Noten von feinem Gebäck, Gewürzen und Früchten.
