Champagne Henriot Blanc de Blancs
Este blanc de blancs es la piedra angular que define el característico estilo de Henriot. La mineralidad y la complejidad son las notas dominantes de un champagne elaborado mayoritariamente con el fruto de viñedos Premier y Grand Cru de la Côte des Blancs y con magnífico potencial de guarda. Puro virtuosismo.

Subtle notions of toast have a lovely tinge of lemon and roasted hazelnut on the nose. Lively mousse on a tender palate bubbles with toasty, nutty autolysis. As it warms up, the mousse softens and shows a sunny roundness of yellow stone fruit that sits well with the toasty yeast notes. Drinking Window 2020 - 2025.
Aromas of lemon oil, crisp yellow apple, brioche, rock salt and dried white flowers preface the latest rendition of Henriot's NV Blanc de Blancs, a medium to full-bodied wine with an elegantly delicate mousse that's nicely concentrated, incisive and distinctly saline, concluding with a chalky finish. It's an excellent Blanc de Blancs that comes recommended. This is lot L1817911117, disgorged in November 2017 with less than eight grams per liter dosage. A year on its cork has done the wine a lot of good in terms of complexity and expressiveness.
Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs yields up its typical crisp and mineral texture over the ripeness of the Henriot style. The Champagne is balanced, fruity with fine acidity to match and the bottling is ready to drink.
Attractive light lemon and almond biscuity notes with dried white flowers and a flinty edge. The palate has elegant citrus-focused flavor with a bright citrus thread and a neat, fresh, gently cashewy finish. Drink now.
