Champagne Henriot | Champagne, France

Brut Millésime 2008

Wine Enthusiast

Packed with fruit while hinting at mature toastiness, this wine is now in perfect balance. Its white fruits are from half-and-half Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, shot through with acidity while having a ripe character. Rich while also crisp, it is ready to drink.

Decanter

An undramatic, cloud-filled season came right in a late harvest in October. A textbook cool vintage of great ageing potential. The perfect 50/50 balance of mineral-stamped Chardonnay and powerful, masculine Pinot makes this a champagne for patient drinkers. Vibrant acidity is joined by notes of white flowers and that magnificent mineral structure.

Vinous

Rich, creamy, and super-expressive, all of which make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Pastry, apricot, lemon confit, green pear and white flowers all grace this subtle, inviting Champagne from Henriot. The 2008  has enough fruit to drink well now, but also more than enough vibrancy to develop nicely in bottle.

Wine Advocate

The wine displays a gently reductive nose with notes of citrus and stone fruit mingling with suggestions of freshly baked bread, oyster shell and smoke. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with a voluminous but notably fine mousse, bright acids and an elegantly chalky finish that's delicate but penetrating. This is a comparatively supple, open-knit example of the taut 2008 vintage.

James Suckling

This is dense and compacted with blueberry and berry character. Full and silky with hints of cream and a long finish. A pretty blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Made from organic grapes.
