Henriot Blanc de Blancs Brut NV

Champagne, FranceHerriot has been independently family run for more than 200 years, allowing them the privileged stocks for long aging, and the ability to dig deep into reserve wines (there is 25 percent reserve wines here). Distinctive from first sniff, with struck flint, toasted popcorn, lemon curd and heady bruleed meringue forming the cushy, ample base. There's a chalky grip that holds this in, a lemon curd core that anchors, and vibrant acidity to focus to a humming finish. That said, the 8-10 g/l dosage and quarter amount reserve wines plumps this beyond an easy drinking wine. This rich wine requires something equally rich, like pate or goose.Tasted: 09 December 2017Tasted by: Prices:
