Tasting Notes

Precision, subtility and finesse characterize this precious vintage. The bouquet reveals citrus fruits on a background of dried flowers, followed by intense notes of violet, which transitions smoothly into mineral notes. The profile is dynamic, lively with pure elegance. On the palate, freshness and finesse deliver on the aromatic promise. The continuity is there and is astounding given the paradox of such a warm year.

Points of Distinction
  • A rare, re-release in the Henriot portfolio 
  • From a year of weather extremes, the Millesime 2003 is ranked among the rarest and most astounding of Champagne.
