About This Wine...

CHAMPAGNE HENRIOT

 

The Henriot family has been in the area since the 16th Century and it was in 1808 that they began to sell what had been until then a very private Champagne. This was the birth of the House which is still today managed by those who bear its name.

 

From the choice of the grapes to the bottling, the Henriot family is completely involved in the making of the Champagne which is to correspond to their idea of perfection. For nearly two centuries and seven generations, the family has patiently kept its secrets, enriched by tradition and savoir-faire. It is above all at the time of blending, the highlight of Champagne’s tradition, that the House exercises its skill to enhance the character of the grapes which have been rigorously selected from the best vineyards, above all the Chardonnay, which is at the heart of the Henriot blends.

 

The grapes from each variety, each vineyard and even each plot are vinified separately and ensure an exceptionally vast range of wines to reproduce this inimitable style every year. The cellar master and members of the family will exercise their skill to produce a delicate, subtle mixture to obtain the perfect blend which, several years later, will give birth to the unique Champagne Henriot cuvées, famed for their elegance, refinement and exquisite lightness.
