0 Henriot - Brut Champagne Souverain

NV Henriot - Brut Champagne Souverain

Price on Apr 18, 2014: $29.99


Though you won't find this Reims-based estate plastering images alongside the M15 anytime soon, it has started to gain recognition amidst the tumultuous world of fine Champagne. The Brut Souverain is a traditional blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that offers titillating floral and fruit aromas that seem to shimmer through the mousse and across the palate. We've enjoyed this affordable luxury with everything from paddlefish roe on crostini at breakfast to smoked salmon quiches at dinner. 

Wine Spectator   A sophisticated, dry style of brut, with appetizing toasty aromas, rich and mature fruit flavors, a melt-in-your-mouth effervescence and a lingering finish. Drink now through 2000. 33,000 cases made.
Wine Enthusiast   There is great intensity to this finely crafted Champagne. It’s rich and toasty, with flavors of ripe gooseberries and, in this example, some good bottle age. Henriot, which also owns Bouchard Père et Fils in Burgundy, is obviously on a good streak at the moment. Imported by Henriot USA.
