About this Wine:
Sparkling, crystalline pale gold with slight green highlights. Abundant effervescence, with fine, delicate bubbles. Pure, concentrated and expressive, with floral (honeysuckle, orange flower, linden), fruity (lemon, dried apricot, almond) and pastry aromas, followed by spicy notes. The attack is dynamic, full and powerful, with aromas of lightly toasted brioche, quince jelly, and acacia honey. The clean, delicious finish develops on a light menthol note and shows excellent length.

Reviews & Ratings

93 Points - James Suckling
A rich and flavorful Blanc de Blancs with grilled pineapple, lemon curd, toasted sourdough, chalk, puffed rice and hints of balsamic on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with silky bubbles and fresh acidity. Delicious spice notes at the end. Chardonnay. 2015 base vintage with 35% reserve wines. 6g/l dosage.

93 Points - Decanter
Subtle notions of toast have a lovely tinge of lemon and roasted hazelnut on the nose. Lively mousse on a tender palate bubbles with toasty, nutty autolysis. As it warms up, the mousse softens and shows a sunny roundness of yellow stone fruit that sits well with the toasty yeast notes. Drinking Window 2020 - 2025

92 Points - Wine Spectator
A toasty edge of roasted hazelnut and subtle smoke is enmeshed with flavors of Asian pear, lemon sorbet and candied ginger in this elegant Champagne. Fresh and mouthwatering, with a finely detailed mousse. Drink now through 2023.

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast
Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs yields up its typical crisp and mineral texture over the ripeness of the Henriot style. The Champagne is balanced, fruity with fine acidity to match and the bottling is ready to drink.

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Based on the 2015 vintage, the new release of Henriot's NV Blanc de Blancs bursts with expressive aromas of white peach, tangerine, sweet orchard fruit and freshly baked bread. Medium to full-bodied, pillowy and nicely concentrated, with tangy acids and a pearly mousse, this new disgorgement is showing particularly well.
