Champagne Henriot Brut Rose NV
Champagne Henriot’s Brut Rosé 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.
On the eye: Salmon pink with copper highlights. Fine, persistent effervescence.
On the 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.
On the 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.
