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.

The discrete Henriot labeling is echoed in this elegant wine. Like so many Henriot Champagnes it has good bottle age, shows toast as well as light red fruits. There is a depth of flavor here, the texture of yeasty mousse and apple skins going right through the taste. Ready to drink, but worth aging.

Coral pink; smooth, lush and juicy with crisp acidity and smooth texture; long and balanced, refined.

True Champagne lovers often reach for Rosé, and Henriot produces of the best. This wine is zesty and bright. Its scintillating aromas and flavors of wild strawberries and bright minerality should pair it deliciously with seared salmon accented with Meyer lemon and fresh dill.

Red grapes account for 60 percent of this blend, predominantly pinot noir, the balance chardonnay. The color is a pale rose-gold, while scents of rose petals and pink grapefruit further the delicate red-fruit impression. Simple, balanced and accessible, this offers touches of sweetness to balance the rasp of its chalky acidity

A firm and creamy rosé Champagne, with rich pastry cream and sweet brioche notes followed by candied grapefruit peel, white peach and smoke accents. Offers a clean-cut, mouthwatering finish.
For the last 200 years, this tiny, family-owned Champagne house has been carefully fine-tuning their craft. Very few know about them (due to limited importation) but those lucky enough to have sampled Henriot Rosé know what to expect: elegant, sophisticated aromas with flavors of red fruits, rose petals and spice. A clean, effervescent mousse and a long finish.
