Henriot Brut Millesime 2012
A firm and focused Champagne, with a subtle overtone of minerally smoke and brine. Lacy in texture and finely knit, this offers layers of yellow apple and pear fruit, marzipan, lemon preserves and aromatic accents of toast and white flowers. Creamy and mouthwatering on the lingering finish. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Drink now through 2032. 450 cases imported.
Henriot's 2012 Brut Millesime is a soft, easygoing Champagne to drink now and over the next handful of years. Pastry, baked apple, spice and dried flowers are nicely laced together. This lacks some of the depth typical of the vintage, and yet it is charming and inviting just the same.
