A powerful, vinous rosé, this presents rooty scents of beets and rhubarb that add a savory nuance to its ripe stone-fruit flavors. It finishes with lean intensity and a tight, floral restraint. Pour it with roast game birds.
The color of a golden raspberry, this is a delicious essence of fruit, its fresh berry flavors and high-toned apple skin crispness bright enough to lift your mood. Lovely intensity and a high yum factor for drinking now.
Cherry-red scents meld into the smoky aroma of gunflint, with both tart fruit and light tannin playing out on the palate in a delicate and sophisticated wine. The flintiness strengthens the tannin in the end, suited to seared magret of duck.
An aromatic, spiced rosé, with intense acidity providing structure and framing pretty white peach, black cherry and raspberry flavors. There’s a nice salty tang counterpointing the ripe fruit notes and leading to a clean, lightly chalky finish. Drink now.
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.
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.
