Winemaker Notes

Golden yellow with fine bubbles. Brut Millesime has a complex nose with mature notes like leather, the strength of the pinots attesting the year. Rich aromas reveal elegant notes of black fruits, cherry, blackberry, and bilberry. On the palate, the wine has fine maturity, but also richness. Mellow notes of pastries, marzipan with a touch of honey, toast and aromas of gingerbread follow. Fine ripe notes complete the finale.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
The Wine Advocate

The 2005 Brut Millesime comes across as quite lean and clenched within the context of the year. It is powerful, chalky and intense, with bright citrus, jasmine and crisp pears woven throughout. This is one of the few 2005s that needs more time in bottle. The 2005 is equal parts Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Dosage is 10 grams per liter. This is Lot # L1112211010. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.

Wine Spectator

Subtle, with creamy currant, almond, licorice and lemon zest notes. Refined in texture and build, with a smoky thread of minerality gaining momentum toward the moderate finish. Drink now through 2016. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Henriot
Founded in Reims in 1808, Champagne Henriot celebrated its 200th birthday in 2008; joining the very exclusive circle of independent 200-year old family owned and managed champagne houses.

Over the years Champagne Henriot has cultivated a unique style of its own, guided only by the pursuit of the rich, pure expression of Chardonnay. Strict grape requirements enable Henriot to highlight the minerality and precision of their vineyards, while the use of malolactic fermentation, a high percentage... View More

A rugged and topographically diverse cool-climate appellation with a rich history, the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA stretches from Half Moon Bay to just above Monterey county. Elevation ranges from just 800 feet to upwards of 3000, and microclimates vary substantially depending on which side of the mountains the vineyards lay. Cool ocean winds and fog play an important role as well. This can be a challenging region in which to grow grapes, but it is well worth the effort. Wine has been made here since the 1800s, most notably from the legendary Ridge Vineyards, whose Monte Bello vineyard garners international admiration.

[Pinot Noir], Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon are the stars of this region, and Merlot and Zinfandel also perform quite well. Santa Cruz Mountains wines are noted for their distinct minerality and balanced acidity. Often these wines can be aged for many years. Organic and sustainable vineyard practices are becoming increasingly common.
