Blanc de Blancs

January 2015

91

Vinous

Pale yellow-gold. Fragrant melon, white peach and tangerine aromas are complicated by smoky lees and floral honey. On the palate, supple melon and pit fruit flavors are energized by smoky minerality. Shows a gently sweet touch and finishes with excellent cut, clarity and persistence.

Wine Advocate

The Henriot NV Brut Blanc de Blancs Disg. 2/2012 is redolent of honeysuckle, heliotrope and linden flower, fresh apple and yeasty brioche, with hints of sea breeze, lemon, grapefruit, and toasted nuts anticipating the salinity and bright citricity allied to piquancy that emerge on the creamy yet vivacious palate. The finish enhances this cuvées patisserie-like personality, evoking quince- and nut paste-filled buttered pastry drizzled with lemon cream, an impression no doubt – and appropriately so – reinforced by ten grams of residual sugar.

View From the Cellar

The bouquet offers up a classic blend of pear, lemon, chalky minerality, bread dough and a topnote of spring flowers. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and nicely focused, with refined mousse, lovely focus and balance and a long, zesty finish.

A fresh, minerally Champagne, lacy in texture and offering an open-knit mix of lemon curd, poached apricot, fleur de sel and biscuit flavors. Moderate finish.

A bright and lively blanc de blanc, with a clean-cut mineral note underscoring the poached apple, toasted almond, apple blossom and candied ginger flavors, accented by a soft and satiny mousse.

James Suckling

A nicely captured reductive edge here, this holds white peach and apple aromas fresh with dried white flowers and a very gentle nutty, cashewy thread. The palate's bright, creamy and fruity; it throws big fruit flavors upwards with crunchy acidity. Drink now.

Wine Spectator

A bright, finely tuned Blanc de Blancs, with a subtle tang of salinity and flavors of lemon meringue pie, glazed apricot, pink grapefruit granita and blanched almond. Creamy and mouthwatering, with a lingering smoke-tinged finish.
