Summarising his views he described the wine as having ‘a wonderfully expressive nose of sourdough, acacia, citrus peel, apricots and honeycomb with some pineapple and grapefruit’. He added ‘It’s explosive on the palate, with mouthwatering acidity and so much tension. Tight bubbles. Drives forward with energy. Chardonnay and pinot noir from the six founding crus of the house: Avize, Chouilly, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Mailly-Champagne, Verzenay and Verzy’.

Historically, owned and managed by eight generations of the Henriot family since 1808, Henriot remains a historic and prestigious Maison. Today it is recognised a Chardonnay specialist, aging its Champagnes to achieve consistency and excellence.
