Henriot Brut Rosé

Cuvee: Rosé
Vintage: Multi-Vintage

Sensual and elegant, with a light pink colour, Brut Rosé is dominated by an intense, fruity nose and has a balanced palate with delicate red fruit notes.

Vinification

Assemblage

Champagne Henriot’s Rosé Brut is obtained by adding Pinot Noir vinified as a red wine to the assemblage. Rosé Brut is made up of a majority of Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims and Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs. More than 15 crus are blended, including the following village crus: Avize, Chouilly, Mareuil sur Aÿ, Verzy, Verzenay, Avenay, Vertus, Trépail and Epernay. Pinot Meunier adds a delicate fruity note.

Rosé Brut contains 25% reserve wines*.

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

Maturing

The bottles of Rosé Brut remain for a period of 2-3 years in the calm and dark of the Gallo-Roman chalk caves in Reims.

Tasting Notes

Eye

Salmon pink with copper highlights. Fine, persistent effervescence.

Nose

Intense, complex and pleasantly fruity, the nose reveals aromas of red berry fruit (raspberry, strawberry) and freshly squeezed citrus fruit (pink grapefruit, mandarin), then light vegetal fragrances (blackcurrant buds) and floral scents (gillyflower, iris), finishing on delicious notes (candied fruit in particular) and mineral tones.

Palate

The palate offers lots of freshness and excellent balance in a harmonious aromatic register. Length is remarkable. Lovely balsamic and floral notes precede the spicy aromas that contribute freshness for a delicious finish.
