Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus 2017

April 2019

90-93

Burghound.com

The sleek, intense and well defined medium bodied flavors exude evident minerality onto the much more complex and persistent finale where the wood telegraphed by the nose reemerges. This is really quite good though note that my predicted range offers the benefit of the doubt that the generous wood will ultimately be successfully integrated.

Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus Domaine 2020

April 2022

90-93

Burghound.com

(From a 4-ha parcel). This one of the more floral-suffused wines in the range with its hints of violet, rose petal and lavender that add touch of elegance to the very ripe poached plum scents that presently lack a bit of freshness. There is verve and freshness on the palate of the dense, voluminous and punchy flavors that coat the palate with dry extract that also serves to buffer the firm tannins shaping the powerful, serious and mildly warm finale. Note that my predicted range offers the benefit of the doubt that the nose will recover better freshness.

Blanc de Blancs

November 2022

Wine Spectator

A finely integrated Champagne, with flavors of ripe apricot and yellow pear fruit enriched by subtle notes of toasted brioche and lemon-infused pastry cream set on a cashmerelike mousse. Reveals hints of oyster shell, spices and white blossoms on the mouthwatering finish.

Blanc de Blancs

April 2023

Wine Advocate

Based on the 2016 vintage, with 32% of vins de réserve, the Henriot NV Blanc de Blancs, disgorged in June 2022 with five grams per liter, reveals an elegant and fresh bouquet with aromas of lemon, peach, spring flowers, spices and pastry. Seamless and vinous, the palate is medium to full-bodied with an elegant mousse and a lively, fresh finish. It is slightly tighter than last year, but this is a well-elaborated Blanc de Blancs that can age for another five years.

Blanc de Blancs

August 2022

Wine Advocate

Based on the 2015, the new release of Henriot's NV Blanc de Blancs bursts with expressive aromas of white peach, tangerine, sweet orchard fruit and freshly baked bread. Medium-to-full bodied, pillowy and nicely concentrated, with tangy acids, and a pearly mousse, this new disgorgement is showing particularly well.

Bourgogne Réserve Chardonnay 2020

July 2022

90

James Suckling

This very solid Burgundian chardonnay has a generous body that's well filled out with lemon curd character. Bright apple and pear notes develop on the nose with a little aeration in the glass. Nice balance of creaminess and lemony freshness at the forthright finish. Made from bought-in grapes from all three Cotes. Drink or hold.

Bourgogne Réserve Pinot Noir 2017

Wine Spectator

An alluring red, elegant and pure, delivering cherry, strawberry and smoky mineral aromas and flavors. Turns a bit leaner on the finish, yet stays long, with a hint of spice.

Smoky cherry, spice and fresh earth flavors mark this fruity, harmonious red. The silky texture, fine balance and nice length make this very enjoyable now.

Brut Millésime 2008

November 2018

91

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.

Brut Millésime 2008

April 2019

91+

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.
