A beautiful gold color. The bubbles are persistent, fine and regular. The nose is pleasant, made very elegant by the large amount of Chardonnay. The Brut Souverain is sharp, well balanced and harmonious on the palate.
A beautifully fine mousse indicates the class of this finely crafted wine. It has some weight, flavors of green apples, with hints of fresh apricots. There is extreme freshness here, the style dry but rich. This bottling tastes young and would be worth aging six months.

How would you like a refined and elegant Champagne? Well, I know I often like this expression most of all, especially with the season's best catch when prepared without heavy sauces and spicy distractions. The Henriot Brut Souverian is simply superb. Light straw color, pinpoint bubbles, steady mousse; fresh green apple aromas, with just a hint of autolysis (or yeastiness), medium bodied, active and scintillating on the palate; quite crisp; dry, excellent acidity, well balanced; bright mineral and green apple flavors; long finish, frisky and fine aftertaste.

A fresh, clean champagne with sliced apple, pear and lots of mineral character. Full to medium body, crisp acidity and a long finish. Lots of citrus undertones. Bright and steely. This is mostly 2009, with the remainder from reserve wines. Four years on the lees. This is very focused. 50% chardonnay and 50% pinot noir.
A firm Champagne, with a lively bead and a minerally undertow, this offers flavors of fresh-cut apple, lemon pith, spring blossom and smoke.
