Cellar/Tasting Notes
The quintessence of the Henriot style, this cuvée is dominated by the chardonnay giving elegance and complex structure. In respect with the family tradition, this cuvée, from the finest vineyards in Champagne, is only produced in exceptional years.

The wine presents with discreet notes of candied citrus, hazelnut and pastries which enhance a bouquet dominated by honey. The nose is ripe, very fine, which is a sign of attractive aromatic evolution.

The wine is mature, well balanced, and elegant which has a lively, frank attack typical of the great vintages. Roasted, toasty aromas, butter and pastry together with fragrances of citrus and wild peach create a rich, aromatic complexity leading to flavors of honey and delicate exotic notes. The length is superb with aromas of pastries, fine touches of hazelnut and honey to complete this magnificent cuvée.
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 93
Light, bright gold. Poached pear, flowers, honey and toasty lees on the smoky, spice-accented nose. Broad and juicy, offering open-knit orchard and pit fruit flavors braced by tangy acidity. Smooth, sappy and smoky on the finish, which shows excellent clarity and closing bite. Tighter than the outstanding 1996 version and missing just a bit of that wine's heft.
Wine Spectator (WS): 95
Like finely woven silk, this offers beautiful texture, sublime balance and integration. Rich apple pastry, candied orange peel, crystallized honey and dried apricot flavors are layered with hints of smoke, sea salt and toasted nut. Lovely, with a fresh, persistent finish.
