After the death of her husband in 1808, Apolline Henriot decided to continue to develop the vineyards and refine the style of the wines. This young, 33 year-old woman set forth her name and founded Veuve Henriot Ainé. Etienne Henriot, son of Paul, who had trained as an agronomist, took over the management of the House. With great vision, he expanded the house’s viticultural domain, which then covered nearly 110 hectares (275 acres), always acquiring parcels in the best grands crus.
Henriot Brut Champagne Souverain
Champagne Henriot Brut Souverain appeals with its nose of white flower and citrus fruit notes, then with a balanced, harmonious palate. "A beautifully fine mousse indicates the class of this finely molded wine. It has some weight, flavors of green apples, with hints of fresh apricots. There is extreme freshness here, the style dry but rich. This bottling tastes young and would be worth aging six months. Editors’ Choice." - Rated 94, Wine Enthusiast
