The producer

Champagne Henriot, established in Reims in 1808, is known for producing both vintage and non-vintage cuvée. Since 1994, it has been under family ownership when Joseph Henriot took over, having left Veuve Clicquot. The house emphasizes the use of grand and premier cru vineyards to craft champagnes with a luminous style, as highlighted by cellar master Laurent Fresnet, who won the "Sparkling Winemaker of the Year" in 2015 and 2016.

The wine

This outstanding Champagne, crafted from a 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir blend sourced from six grand cru villages, has matured for 12 years on yeast lees before its release. It showcases a profound intensity with notes of peach, chalk, and brioche, all unified by a delicate mousse. The finish is refreshed by a minimal dosage, enhancing the wine's inherent vibrancy.

We choose our wines based on a range of criteria (see how we choose our wines) of which critic scores is just one. Rather than simply highlight the best score to promote a wine, our average critic score is calculated from the scores provided by several respected wine critics, who we follow for specific regions. They do not represent all critic scores and, wherever possible, we try and give more weight to more recent reviews. Where appropriate we consider market-based scores like Global Wine Score or Wine Searcher Average scores.

As a rule, we look to offer wines that achieve a 92/100 average critic score or better and frankly a lot of very good wines simply don’t make the cut. As a high-end provider we want to reflect that positioning in the quality of wines we offer. Such wines are only a tiny fraction of those generally on offer in the market. We believe that an average score is a more conservative and representative approach, but it is still subjective and only offered as a guide to our customers, who will (and should) do their own research. We will add individual critic scores to our website in the future.
