Blanc de Blancs

October 2016

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.

Blanc de Blancs

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.

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.

Restaurant Wine

The Blanc de Blancs is exceptional: medium bodied, intense and complex in flavor (pineapple, toast, pear, lemon, honey, roasted nut), with excellent balance, and a crisp, persistent finish. First rate.

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.

Wine Spectator

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.

View From the Cellar

The non-vintage Blanc de Blancs has always been one of the strong suits at Henriot, and the new release is no exception. The bouquet is pure, vibrant and classy, offering up scents of pear, apple, chalky soil tones, incipient notes of crème patissière and a top note of white flowers. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, focused and still youthfully zippy, with a fine core, good focus and grip, elegant mousse and a long, zesty finish.

A generous application of wood and menthol can be found on the dark pinot fruit, spice, floral and newly turned earth aromas. The rich and muscular if rather supple big-bodied flavors possess a caressing mouth feel, indeed even velvety, before culminating in an impressively persistent finish where the only nit is a touch of warmth.
