Champagne Henriot Blanc de Blancs Brut : Vibrant & Approachable !
Score : 90/100
This Blanc de Blancs Champagne was COMMENDED at Social Vignerons Blanc de Blancs Champagne AWARDS.
This is a Non-Vintage cuvée.
This Champagne wine comes in an elegant bright lemon-yellow color with solid medium intensity.
It is upfront and expressive to smell. Distinct lime, roasted hazelnuts, and vanilla giving a charming appeal.
The palate is also vibrant with a somehow grassy liveliness. Yes, there is lively acidity, good balance with just the right amount of discrete sugars. Rather outstanding finish filled with roasted nuts, nougat. There are surprising but enjoyable notes of foie gras, or somewhat cured meat character in the profile, suggesting this will go wonderfully with cured meat entrée or subtle pate and canapes.
Medium bodied, this is a pleasing and approachable, fruity, spicy and a little grassy Blanc de Blancs with a joyful personality.
Retails around $60 or 40€. Find this wine to buy on Wine-Searcher
