Tasting Notes

The aromatic profile is made of contrasts: autumnal, smoked and oaky notes yet delicately brightened with a touch of fresh citrus fruits. Striking vivacity on the palate, lemony flavors giving it a unambiguous length.

Points of Distinction
  • A rare, re-release in the Henriot portfolio
  • Defined by Maison Henriot as a champagne of character, power, and expression, yet the year 1996, rather cool, softens this profile with liveliness. Thus, this contrast makes this Champagne particularly unique.
