Henriot Champagne Blend Champagne Cuvée des Enchanteleurs Brut 1985

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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

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
