First taste: Champagne Henriot Cuvée Hemera 2006

Simon Field MW tastes the new release of Henriot’s reinvented prestige cuvée.

Champagne Henriot to me always embodies the ideals of crystalline purity, focus and precision. Indeed when the new chef de caves, Alice Tétienne, was asked to describe the style of the wines, she used three words: ‘precision’, ‘luminosity’ and ‘virtuosity’. What is more, the deluxe cuvée Hemera has been created precisely to reflect these virtues.
