Henriot Brut

Henriot Brut

Since 1808, Champagne Henriot, one of the last independent and family-owned houses in Champagne, has pursued a tradition of excellence, a fragile balance between delicacy, intensity, and purity. For seven generations, the family has selected only the very best vineyards, concentrated on the purity of Chardonnay and has upheld the utmost respect for time in order to ensure each cuvée has an opportunity to reach its full expression.

In 1791, Nicolas Henriot settled in Reims and started a negociant business. His subsequent marriage to Apolline Godinot brought a dowry of vineyards in the Montagne de Reims. Following Nicolas' death in 1808, the veuve Henriot founded the maison.

Henriot's close association with Chardonnay dates back to another important wedding in 1880 when Paul married Marie Marguet, owner of vineyards in the Côtes des Blancs. Today Henriot is one of those rare family Champagne maisons, still independently owned and managed by the eponymous family continuously since its beginnings.

Joseph Henriot has maintained the commitments made by the previous generations as the head of the Maison, commitments that consist of selecting the best crus, enhancing Chardonnay's purity and giving each cuvée time to develop fully.

Since 2008 his son Thomas Henriot has been gradually stepping into his father's shoes, representing the seventh generation to lead the family company. He continues to preserve the House's “historical" spirit while instilling in it a new dynamism.

A symbol of the elegant and precise style of Champagne Henriot. Brut Souverain is appealing with notes of white flowers and citrus fruit followed by a balanced and harmonious palate.

Tasting Notes

The colour is characterised by a brilliant light straw-gold. Effervescence is dense and persistent, with fine, regular bubbles. Initially the nose is precise, expressive and refreshing, with notes of citrus and yellow fruit; floral fragrances (vine flowers, elderflowers) and pastry aromas (brioche, toast, grilled almond) follow. A lively, fresh and balanced attack, with pastry, spice (vanilla) and fruity (morello cherry, candied plum) notes. The full texture precedes a clean, refreshing finish marked by citrus fruit aromas.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
