View From the Cellar

The wine offers up a beautifully complex nose of lemon, apple, warm biscuits, chalky minerality, white flowers and a nice touch of orange zest in the upper register. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and impeccably balanced, with a rock solid core of fruit, very refined mousse, excellent focus and complexity and a very, very long, still quite youthful finish.

Wine Spectator

A toasty version, this is elegant overall, offering a rich, finely woven palate of baked apricot, marzipan, lemon curd and a smoky mineral. Fine and creamy in texture, with a lingering, bright and zesty finish.

Le Pan

A unique wine, this is a blanc de blancs produced from a solera, a perpetual reserve begun in 1990. With notes of citrus peel and lovely ripe apricot, pear and crème Brule, it is at once fresh and still very rich; Henriot conceives of it as a 'dialogue between the ancient vintages and the modern vintages'. Great elegance, wonderful length.

James Suckling

A racy, dense wine but it's refined and silky with wonderful texture and length. Full-bodied and very tight with minerals and sliced apples. Couilly, Avize, Oger and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Mostly from their vintages. It's aged five years on the lees. It starts off slowly and goes very, very long. Such intense brioche, dough and tropical fruit. Mutli-layered with wonderful phenolic layers. Bottled in 2009 and disgorged end of last year. The process began 1990 and each year they add a little bit of the new vintage in the solera in stainless. Only in 1,000 magnums.
