Delicious. Full rich and exuding toasted brioche vanilla and honey notes this suave Champagne feels like velvet ending with a lingering aftertaste of coffee. Drink now through 2005. -BS

Powerful but lively with excellent clarity to the deep chewy pit fruit and lemon pith flavors. Finishes with very good smoky persistence.

The 2005 Henriot Brut Millésime is comprised of a fifty-fifty blend of chardonnay and pinot noir and is made up entirely of fruit from either grand cru or premier cru vineyards. The wine spent six years on its lees prior to disgorgement and has a dosage of 9.5 grams per liter. The wine is still youthfully reticent, but offers up a complex mélange of green apple, tart orange, smoke, bread dough, stony minerality and citrus peel. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish, young and tightly-knit, with a fine core of fruit, superb focus, elegant mousse, and plenty of nascent complexity poking out from behind the brisk acids on the long and racy finish. This definitely needs some time in the cellar to blossom, but it will be excellent. 2017-2040.
