Henriot Champagne Blend Champagne Brut Millésimé Rosé 2002
For the last 200 years, this tiny, family-owned Champagne house has been carefully fine tuning their craft. Very few know about them (due to limited importation) but those lucky enough to have sampled Henriot Ros?? know what to expect: elegant, sophisticated aromas with flavors of red fruits, rose petals and spice. A clean, effervescent mousse and a long finish.
Editorial Reviews for Henriot Champagne Blend Champagne Brut Millésimé Rosé
A touch of caramel greats the nose followed by a more than obvious oxidative notes. there is really nice dried pear, apple and apricot fruit hear and the nose does clean up nicely with air allowing the fruit to shine through. Very bright and with nice focus and fine mousse. Very refreshing and complex. 88pts

A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. 1995 Henriot Cuvee des Enchanteleurs 750ml
This is delicious, featuring vanilla, graphite, toast and candied lemon aromas and flavors. Creamy in texture, yet firmly structured, with refinement and length. Has a nice vanilla and coffee aftertaste. Drink now through 2020. -BS
Extraordinary Champagne, this Tete de Cuvee from Henriot is produced only in exceptional vintages. The grapes are sourced primarily from Grand Cru rated vineyards such as Mesnil-Sur-Oger, Verzy, Avize and Mailly and the finished wine is aged 10 years in the cool chalk caves beneath the Henriot estate before disgorgement and release. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this rare wine a lofty 98 points and said "A glorious Champagne, now at the peak of its powers and maturity. It is rich, creamy, lightly toasty, cookies and yeast propelling the fruits and acidity forward into a wonderful texture. This wine confirms Henriot’s place at the top tables of Champagne." Limited! All Champagne orders require 3-5 days processing. No express delivery available on Champagne.
The discrete Henriot labeling is echoed in this elegant wine. Like so many Henriot Champagnes it has good bottle age, shows toast as well as light red fruits. There is a depth of flavor here, the texture of yeasty mousse and apple skins going right through the taste. Ready to drink, but worth aging.
On the dry side, with spice notes accenting the red berry flavors, with a chalky feel. Balanced and intense, though not flashy. Berry notes and a hint of orange peel grace the finish. Drink now.
Light pink with a fine bead. Zesty redcurrant and strawberry aromas are given depth by pungent herbs and a subtle smokiness. Firm and focused on the palate, offering spicy red berry and cherry skin flavors and good mineral snap. The precise, nervy leaves sweet red fruit and dusty minerals behind. Very fresh, and strikingly elegant.
