Tight-grained with an immediate impression of the sea before forest floor and citrus notes take over. This is bright and fresh with plenty of spice toast and candied berry flavors backed by a firm structure. The finish just keeps going. Best from 2012 through 2040. 1000 cases imported.

The start of cookie yeast and toast character a vibrant mineral texture hints of spice green herbs and a final white peach flavor. It is still young just keep aging.

($185; a 50/50 blend of chardonnay and pinot noir all from grand cru vineyards; L0909920608) Vivid yellow-gold.

($185; a 50/50 blend of chardonnay and pinot noir all from grand cru vineyards; L0909920608) Vivid yellow-gold. Kaleidoscopic aromas of citrus fruits poached pear mango lees and licorice with slow-building florality. Supple palate-coating orchard and exotic fruit flavors are complicated by notes of herbs and buttered toast with a smoky quality in the background. Seems younger than it did last year showing excellent finishing clarity and persistent smoke and spice character. This really won't let go of the palate which is fine by me. I'd still hold this. -Josh Raynolds

The 1996 Brut Cuvee des Enchanteleurs is one of the softer more forward 1996s readers are likely to come across. Smoke cantaloupe pear flowers mint sweet baking spices and apricots are some of the notes that emerge from this layered sublime Champagne. The finish is long and polished. The 1996 Enchanteleurs is drinking beautifully today but also appears to have the stuffing to age gracefully for at least another decade. Disgorged: June 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.This is an impressive set of new releases from Henriot an historic estate that seems to be experiencing a resurgence in quality. All of this house's Champagnes see full malolactic fermentation yet retain an element of cut and verve that gives the best wines impeccable balance
