Henriot Champagne Blend Champagne Brut Millésimé 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

Henriot pays tribute to these charming yet powerful vintages. The high proportion of Chardonnay Grands Crus makes this cuvée a complex and refined Champagne with fresh, delicate aromas. The perfect expression of the combination of a great year and the typical elegance of the Henriot style. Composition of the cuvée*: - 48% Chardonnay, a very high proportion compared to the average within the appellation - 52% Pinot Noir * This estimated data is given for information only and may vary slightly from one year to another.

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

Flavors of ripe, crisp apples, white fruits and cinnamon dominate this long-lasting, concentrated wine. There is a touch of toastiness in the aroma, but it is still young, with a firm, mineral character to finish. Wine Enthusiast. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. 1996 Henriot Brut Millesime 750ml
