Henriot Brut Souverain 750ml
Symbolizing 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.
The Brut Souverain blend also contains a small quantity of the 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
Tasting Notes: 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 flavours 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.
