    Winemaker's Notes:

    A beautiful gold color. The bubbles are persistent, fine and regular. The nose is pleasant, made very elegant by the large amount of Chardonnay. The Brut Souverain is sharp, well balanced and harmonious on the palate.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A beautifully fine mousse indicates the class of this finely crafted wine. It has some weight, flavors of green apples, with hints of fresh apricots. There is extreme freshness here, the style dry but rich. This bottling tastes young and would be worth aging six months.

    Henriot's non-vintage blend takes a panoramic view of Champagne, working with fruit from 25 crus, 60 percent pinot noir (mostly Montagne de Reims) and 40 percent chardonnay (mostly Cote des Blancs). One third of the blend is reserve wine from four vintages, The current release is brisk, bright, zesty and grand, its flavors combining fresh lemon and earthy roasted fennel in a gracious, mouthwatering Champagne.

    Shows lovely balance, with a lacy texture and a fine frame of acidity enlivening the rich flavors of toasted brioche, baked plum, graphite, crystallized honey and ground anise. Offers a smoky, lingering finish.

    Light gold. Fresh pear, melon and lemon zest on the floral- and mineral-accented nose. Bright and energetic, offering spicy pear and lemon curd flavors enlivened by chalky minerality. Shows a suave blend of richness and energy, with impressive finishing clarity and stony persistence. A more lively showing than I expected for this bottling, which typically displays more musky, smoky character.
