“Sparkling Winemaker of the year” in 2015 & 2016 - “Len Evans trophy for 5 year consistency” in 2018 - International Wine Challenge

Founded in 1808 by Apolline Henriot, Champagne Henriot is one of these rare, independent Champagne houses that has been owned by a steady line of the same family since the beginning. The Henriot style is known for wines that strikingly combine refined elegance and freshness with aromatic complexity, with Chardonnay always in the limelight.

One of the keys to Henriot's consistency is the quality of their Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyard supplies in particular from the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims, which form the core of their aromatic, balanced and long-lived Champagnes.

Rating: 95 Points by Wine Enthusiast

Tasting Note: Packed with fruit while hinting at mature toastiness, this wine is now in perfect balance. Its white fruits are from half-and-half Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, shot through with acidity while having a ripe character. Rich while also crisp, it is ready to drink.

Henriot 家族自 16 世紀起就居於法國香檳區,到了 1808 年正式成立 Champagne Henriot 這個品牌,其堅強的實力一直是 Cote des Blancs 首屈一指的葡萄園。目前擁有 25 公頃的葡萄園,分別位於 Chouilly, Avize 和 Épernay。

Henriot 對葡萄園相當重視,每年九月中至十月中的收成期,以人工採收並嚴格篩選葡萄。風格以高比例的夏多內 (Chardonnay)為核心,展現出清新、優雅的不凡風味。
香檳裝瓶之後,皆靜置在 Reims 區 Callo-Roman18 公尺深、溫度為 11℃、濕度為 98% 的天然石灰岩酒窖裡,讓香檳緩慢熟成,時間幾乎都是法定年限的兩倍,因此讓香檳得以琢磨出最巔峰的風味。

兩個世紀以來,經過七個世代的經營,Henriot維持著同樣的釀酒水準,在每一瓶香檳身上付出同等的熱情與對品質不變的承諾。從選擇葡萄品種到裝瓶,Henriot家族都親自參與每一個步驟。把獨有的釀酒美學發揮的淋漓盡致,產製出深獲荷蘭、奧地利以及匈牙利等皇室喜愛的香檳。
