Henriot 2006 "Cuvee Hémera" Brut Champagne



Add to Wishlist

This is the top cuvée from Henriot, and is sourced from just six grand cru villages. It is composed of 50% Chardonnay from Avize, Chouilly, and Mesnil and 50% Pinot Noir, only from the northern grand crus of Mailly, Verzenay, and Verzy. This small-production Champagne is released very late, and justifies its price with the long ageing that has been lavished on it. If you are looking for something decadently rich, yet still bright and light on the finish, look no further. Limited.

96 Points: "The Cuvée Hemera is Henriot’s new name for their Tête de Cuvée bottling, which had previously been known as Cuvée Enchanteleurs. This is the first vintage of the house’s top of the line bottling that has been crafted from beginning to end by Cellar Master Laurent Fresnet. The wine is a fifty-fifty blend of chardonnay and pinot noir, as is the case with their Brut Millésime, but here, only grand cru vineyards are used for the cuvée. The 2005 Cuvée Hemera was aged twelve years sur latte prior to disgorgement and a finishing dosage of five grams per liter. The bouquet is deep, pure and stunning, offering up a very refined blend of pear, apple, a touch of hazelnut, gentle smokiness, a very complex base of soil tones, fresh-baked bread and just a whisper of caraway seed in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and rock solid at the core, with impeccable focus and grip, very refined mousse and outstanding length and grip on the poised, balanced and exquisite finish. This is simply outstanding!"

95 Points Wine Enthusiast: "Only produced in the top years, this wine, named apparently after the Greek goddess of daylight, has just achieved maturity. It is rich in notes of almonds and toast that meld together with the ripe white fruits. It's a great wine that is impressive and ready to drink, although it will also easily age further. *Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2018*
