K&L Notes

Henriot's vineyard has been around since the 1700s, but they didn't begin producing bubbly until 1808. Composed of 40% Chardonnay and 60% Pinot Noir, the Souverain Brut tends toward a lighter, more crisp style with decent acidity and flavors of green apples, pears, limes, nectarines and a light bit of minerality. Also has some cream and vanilla on the finish.

    The house of Henriot is one of the last of the big name negociants to stay independent, and that independence has allowed them to focus on quality in the bottle. This Champagne is composed of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from 25 crus within the region, many from their own 87 acre estate. The Souverain has a lovely toasty quality that is nicely balanced by a refreshing zing. It is a perfect aperitif!

    Amazingly bright and moussey. Pure golden honey in color, and clean yet luxurious minerality on the palate. Boy would this pair well with sushi! This is an uber value and a superbly elegant classic style of Champagne!

    Beautiful toast aromatics on the nose open up to amazingly fresh green apples and quince on the palate. How a grand marque can make such an elegant cuvee at this amazing a price is truly impressive!

    Although the majority of the blend is pinot noir, the crisp chardonnay fruit stands out on the nose. Refreshing citrus, green apples and minerality are the dominant characteristics and they create refreshing and clean scents that are reminiscent of a fine blanc de blanc. On the palate, there is also a crispness that makes for a lighter style of sparkling wine. Pears, limes, nectarines and (again) a hint of minerality are at the forefront. On the finish and at the back of the palate are cream and vanilla from the pinot noir. This is a very solid Champagne at an excellent price; it’s a one-time deal, so when we run out, it’s finis!

    After a year and a half as a Champagne club member, I finally found "the one" I was looking for! This is a great bubbly and a steal at this price. Wonderful fresh, crisp green apple flavors that linger for a long time on your palate.

    Very delicious - drinkable. Full, not sweet, not dry. Went well with bacon wrapped dates. I know, castor oil would be good with bacon wrapped dates --- but Henriot is fabulous especially for the club price. I would take it over VC anyday.
