Points of Distinction

 

  • Benefits from the addition of 35% reserve wines
  • Produced from 2/3 Premier and Grand Cru vineyards

  • After several years of blending experimentation, the Brut Rosé was added the Henriot’s signature collection in the early 1980’s by the 7th generation of the family. The challenge for the House was to create a Champagne Rosé that truly reflects the Henriot style—luminous and chardonnay-driven—while remaining anchored to one of the fundamental principles of the House: the art of blending. Thus, the Brut Rosé is a non-vintage or multi-vintage blend with a high proportion of Chardonnay.
