Few champagne vintages are noteworthy, hence the designation N.V. (non vintage). 2008 was, on the other hand, an outstanding vintage worthy of celebration.
Created in 1808, Champagne Henriot is one of those rare, independent Champagne maisons that has been owned and managed by an unbroken line of the same family since its inception.
Faithful to a tradition established for more than eight generations, the family works relentlessly to achieve one sole ambition - to maintain the Maison's prestigious name.
Laurent Fresnet, Champagne Henriot Cellar Master has been awarded the prestigious International Wine Challenge award for "Sparkling Winemaker of the Year" for both 2015 and 2016.
"A homage to Hemera, Greek goddess of daylight, the luminous cuvée is produced only in exceptional years. As winemaker Laurent Fresnet's first cuvée for the House, it embodies the unique and expressive style. The Chardonnay for Cuvée Hemera comes from 3 villages (Chouilly, Avize, and Mesnil-sur-Oger) in the Côte de Blancs and the Pinot Noir derives from the north of Montagne de Reims (Mailly Champagne, Verzy, and Verzenay). Fresh aromas on the nose, with candied citrus and honey on the palate, leading into a long, toasting finish."
