Symbolising precision and balance, fresh and delicious in equal measure, Brut Souverain by Henriot carries the quintessential expression of the great Champagne terroirs. The exceptionally high proportion of chardonnay (50%), balanced to perfection with pinot (45% pinot noir and 5% pinot meunier) can be thanked for the unique character of this Champagne. More than 25 cru wines from the finest Champagne terroirs in Cotes des Blancs and Montagne de Reims make up the blend, together with 30% of precious reserve wines.
All these elements allow Laurent Fresnet, Cellar Master, to create the ultimate blend, and year after year recreate, with amazing consistency, this unique signature style.
Each bottle is then left to rest for more than 3 years in the cool, calm surrounds of our cellars in Reims.
The Brut Souverain blend also contains a small quantity of our prestige Cuve 38 Champagne. This wine, made in the style of a perpetual reserve crafted exclusively from Grand Cru chardonnay, is unique to the Champagne House and expresses its quintessential savoir-faire and originality.
Straw-gold, bright and clear in appearance. A lovely bead in the glass forms a cortege of regular, delicate bubbles.
On the nose, the Champagne offers magnificent, vivacious character. Citrus fruit aromas are followed by a cavalcade of floral bouquets, elderberry and vine blossom. Delicious brioche notes and the simplicity of lightly toasted bread and roasted almonds.
Well balanced and harmonious on the palate, summoning flavors of brioche, together with crunchy cherries and the sun-kissed blush of white peach. Clean on the finish, with all the freshness of just-picked walnuts.
A touch of vanilla-laced pastry cream sweetness accents this fresh and focused Champagne, with a fine mousse. This is well-balanced by crunchy acidity and flavors of lemon peel, green pear and spring blossom. Drink now through 2022. 6,000 cases imported. AN-11/2019
Yellow-gold. Sexy, smoky orchard and pit fruit aromas offer a deep, leesy character and a whiff of dried flowers. Very complex for a non-vintage brut bottling, showing ripe apple, pear and peach flavors, serious depth and a chewy texture. The smoky leesy character echoes through the long, sappy finish.
