Henriot, Cuve 38 La Réserve Perpétuelle Blanc de Blancs NV
Not the first time I’ve witnessed the otherworldly freshness that can be sustained by annually refreshing a grand old solera, but I was stunned by the unbridled joy of youth radiating from this glass. The wisdom of maturity is articulated in secondary richness, but it’s still far from tertiary in its development. It will effortlessly take another 25 years in its stride.
