Full tasting note and wine making –
Henriot Brut Rose Champagne NV On the nose, this Champagne may surprise with its characteristic, complex intensity and appealing fruit-driven style. Red and dark berry fruit aromas of raspberry, strawberry and crunchy cherry, followed by freshly squeezed lemon, pink grapefruit and mandarin orange. Vegetal notes then follow in succession, offering blackcurrant bud and cloves, together with delicate iris-scented powder and finishing on delicious notes of candid fruits. Well-balanced on the palate, revealing incredible, unashamed persistence. Attractive balsamic and floral flavours pave the way for spicy notes, in a wave of great freshness. The tasting culminates in a lingering touch of sweetness.
This Rosé champagne allies elegance with intensity in the purest Henriot style. Crafted by adding Pinot Noir red wine to the blend, this Champagne expresses the very best of Montagne de Reims Pinot Noir (50%) and Meunier (10%), while preserving the fresh mineral character of Chardonnay (40%). the grapes are from Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards. Henriot Brut Rosé also contains precious reserve wines which make up 35% of the blend. Every bottle is then left to rest in the cool, calm surrounds of our cellars for 3 years.
The producer –
Established in 1808, Champagne Henriot is one of the rare Champagne houses that is completely independent, and which has remained in the hands of the same family throughout its long and illustrious history.
Since its founding, the Maison has been driven by the passion of individuals who have captured the essence of Champagne’s true terroir, passing this unique expertise from one generation to another. Originally from Lorraine, the Henriot family settled in Champagne in 1640. Nicolas Henriot married Apolline Godinot, who owned prestigious Pinot Noir vineyards in the Montagne de Reims. Together, they devoted their time and energy to the family vineyards and selling wine. On the death of her husband in 1808, Apolline launched Maison Henriot. In 1880, Marie Marguet, the wife of Apolline’s grandson, added to the family’s collection of vineyards with several plots in the Côte des Blancs. This firmly established Maison Henriot in the prestigious Chardonnay vineyards. Today, using the finest Blancs de Champagne which are at the heart of its history, Henriot adds an exceptionally high proportion of Premier and Grand Crus to its cuvées which come from the finest Chardonnay parcels.
In order to maintain a consistent level of excellence across all of its house styles, the company strictly adheres to a set of very precise rules governing the growing and winemaking process. The Henriot vineyards are comprised of 34,000 hectares: 17 Grand Cru vineyards and 42 Premier Cru, using three grape varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Plant density is limited to 7,500 – 9,000 vines per hectare. Henriot believe that their wines should age for as long as possible, with a minimum age of 15 months for a nonvintage and three years for a vintage.
The production process is careful and considered to achieve the very best from the grapes. All the wines are left to age in the Maison’s cellars, 18 metres below ground in ideal temperature and humidity conditions. For Champagne Henriot, Chardonnay is king and makes up at least 50% of all of its wines. Henriot believes Chardonnay to be a symbol of the finesse and elegance that constitutes the very essence of the House. Standard bearer of Maison Henriot’s savoir-faire, their Blanc de Blancs delights with its astonishing complexity and length, with Henriot ageing their wines up to three times longer to allow the Chardonnay to reach its full expression.
Henriot use a high proportion of Grand and Premier Crus in their blends, mainly from the Côte des Blancs, which is widely recognised for the finesse of its Chardonnays.
