Henriot Souverain Brut NV
Not Vintage Specific
Wine Spectator 93
"Firm and toasty, with hints of tropical fruit mixing with notes of quince, lemon zest, smoky mineral, ginger and white pepper. This finds a balance between its fresh, lively character and a sweet, juicy component, ending with a long, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2021." ~AN
Wine Enthusiast 94
"A beautifully fine mousse indicates the class of this finely crafted wine. It has some weight, flavors of green apples, with hints of fresh apricots. There is extreme freshness here, the style dry but rich. This bottling tastes young and would be worth aging six months." ~JS
Wall Street Journal Very Good/Delicious
"Best of Tasting: Clean, crisp and bracing, with great fruit, minerals and lemony acids. Ripe and austere at the same time fascinating. Excellent with oysters."
Favorite Bubbly - This is a top-notch champagne... anything else comparable is $10 - $15 more.
