“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.
Gift Box Concept: Les Aulnois can be found in the village of Pierry, in France, at the foot of the Cote des Blancs. Today, this magnificent residence is the heart and soul of the Henriot family. It retains the particular ambiance and grace of a house that has always carried with it the souls of the families that have previously resided in its splendour. Maison Henriot wanted to celebrate this house by making a gift box in the shape of its french garden.
Tasting Note: "A rich and toasty version, featuring roasted almond, brioche, honey and graphite notes. Vibrant acidity and a finely textured bead keep this mouthwatering and light-footed, carrying flavors of dried cherry, wild strawberry and licorice." - Wine Spectator
