First taste: Champagne Henriot Cuvée Hemera 2008

Simon Field MW is among the first to taste the third vintage of Henriot's long lees-aged prestige cuvée, finding that 'power and elegance entwine perfectly'.

Champagne Henriot is a gemstone; a medium sized house producing just under a million bottles per year, with some magnificent vineyards across the region, many of them in bijou grand and premier cru sites.

With a heritage dating back to 1808, and an impressive manor house to show off in Pierry, Henriot boasts an impressive range, which starts with the Brut Souverain non-vintage, currently built around a 2016 base.

Henriot also now has an extremely articulate and passionate chef de caves in Alice Tétienne, born and bred in Champagne and only three years into the job.
