Henriot Brut Souverain

Symbol of the precise, elegant style of Champagne Henriot’s wines, Brut Souverain appeals with its nose of white flower and citrus fruit notes, then with a balanced, harmonious palate. An ideal partner for aperitif.

Vinification

Brut Souverain is made up of a balanced proportion of Chardonnay, in the majority from the Côte des Blancs, and Pinot Noir, mostly from the Montagne de Reims. Pinot Meunier adds a delicate fruity note.

Brut Souverain is composed of 20% reserve wines*.

More than 25 crus are assembled, including the following village crus: Mesnil sur Oger, Oger, Avize, Cramant, Chouilly, Aÿ, Verzy, Verzenay, Beaumont, Sillery, Mailly Champagne.

The composition of Brut Souverain changes from year to year to take account of climate variations and to perpetuate House style. Brut Souverain is composed of 20% reserve wines.

* The percentage of reserve wines may vary from one year to another.

Ageing

The bottles of Brut Souverain remain for a period of about 3 years in the calm and dark of the Gallo-Roman chalk caves in Reims.

Tasting Notes

 

Eye

The colour is characterised by a brilliant light straw-gold. Effervescence is dense and persistent, with fine, regular bubbles.

Nose

Initially the nose is precise, expressive and refreshing, with notes of citrus and yellow fruit; floral fragrances (vine flowers, elderflowers) and pastry aromas (brioche, toast, grilled almond) follow.

Palate

A lively, fresh and balanced attack, with pastry, spice (vanilla) and fruity (morello cherry, candied plum) notes. The full texture precedes a clean, refreshing finish marked by citrus fruit aromas.
