Henriot Brut Rose Champagne
A pastel sky, the perfume of summer, the silky shine of home-grown, red berry fruits: pleasure is all about nuances.
The Brut Rosé is one of the most unexpected creations from Maison Henriot. After several years of blending experimentation, the it was added to the House's signature collection in the early 1980's by the seventh generation of the family. The challenge for the House was to create a Champagne Rosé that truly reflects the Henriot style, while remaining anchored to one of the fundamental principles of the House: the art of blending. Thus, the Brut Rosé is a non-vintage or multi-vintage blend. The most delicate of Henriot's champagnes, it is dominated by an intense, fruity nose and has a balanced palate with delicate red fruit notes.
Blend: 60% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Meunier
Spicy baked red and blackberry nose with a whiff of struck-match. The palate offers almond cake and red berry notes and glimpses of butter, nuts and lemon macaroon. A very good rose to match salads and barbecued fish.
Pretty copper and light-pink color with fine bubbles. Strawberries and minerals with some earth undertones on the nose, following through to a full body with a dense, condensed palate and a firm yet creamy finish. This is very vinous and complex. Pinot noir and chardonnay. Drink now.
