Farmed organically since 2008, the aim of the estate is to produce wines that speak clearly of the bright sky and diverse terroirs of the region.

"For over 210 years the Henriot family has symbolised an innovative approach and has remained independent. This chardonnay dominant champagne house incorporates an exceptionally high proportion of Premiers and Grands Crus in its cuvées, which come from the best Chardonnay parcels. Producing only 1.3 million bottles a year, this family owned house features a long-aging style and a focus on Chardonnay. Says 8th generation managing director, Thomas Henriot: "I do not like wines that go in strange directions. I like to know where we are and where we are going. Full malolactic fermentation provides soft structures, with dosages between 8 and 11 g/L." Tyson Stelzer, The Champagne Guide Pale Pink.

""Spicy baked red and blackberry nose with a whiff of struck-match. The palate offers almond cake and red berry notes and glimpses of butter, nuts and lemon macaroon. A very good rose to match salads and barbecued fish. High-pitched aromas of red berries, blood orange, ginger and chalky minerals, with an element of Asian spices emerging with air. Juicy, spicy and firm, showing surprising volume and very good energy to the spice-accented blood orange and strawberry flavors. This silky, penetrating, linear Champagne carries no excess fat. Closes on a dusty mineral note, with excellent clarity and length." 95 Decanter
