93pts Wilfred Wong

The Henriot Blanc de Blancs Champagne is beautiful and refined.  This wine is delicate. Its subtle aromas and flavors of crisp, tart apple and racy minerality should pair it well with a platter of raw Olympic oysters. (Tasted: March 14, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

93pts Wine Enthusiast

This is great Champagne, in the bottle-aged Henriot style. It's a classic Chardonnay, ripe, creamy, packed with yellow fruits, and finely balanced with a great waft of toast. A high percentage of older vintages in the blend gives this wine richness, maturity, without ever losing its crisp edge.

93pts Tasting Panel

This all-Chardonnay assemblage is made up of 30% reserve wines, mainly from the Côte des Blancs. After an introduction of honeyed floral aromas and delicate pastry scents, the fine bubbles dissipate quickly to release notes of key lime, orange blossom, toasty egg bread, and an array of citrus and stone fruit. It finishes on a mineral note—breezy and lean

91pts Wine Spectator

Lightly toasty, with a hint of grilled nut lacing the poached apple, fleur de sel and lemon pastry cream notes. Fresh and balanced, with the fine mousse carrying the flavor range on the creamy finish. Drink now through 2022.

90pts Wine & Spirits

This wine’s light chamomile scent and spiced apple flavors give it a pure chardonnay profile. That, plus its powerful leesy grip, led one taster to describe it as “Chablis on steroids.” It’s rich and creamy, taking on fresh depths of pale chalk and pea-tendril flavors as it opens. The blend, including 40 percent reserve wines, is seamless.

90pts James Suckling

A nicely captured reductive edge here, this holds white peach and apple aromas fresh with dried white flowers and a very gentle nutty, cashewy thread. The palate's bright, creamy and fruity; it throws big fruit flavors upwards with crunchy acidity.

90pts Decanter

Rich, creamy, full-bodied expression offering lifted toast, bread crust and brioche aromas and fruity quince, apple and mineral flavours; long and harmonious.

Winemaker Notes

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.

Lovely as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to dishes such as foie gras terrine, roasted chicken, lobster rolls, smoked salmon or sushi.
