ABOUT THIS WINE
The challenge for Maison Henriot was to create a Champagne Rosé that truly reflects Henriot’s style and philosophy putting the art of blending at its core. Thus, Henriot Rosé is a multi-vintage blend as well as a blend of the three main grape varieties in Champagne: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Meunier. Each year, the cuvée is produced from a selection of grapes with distinctive aromatic freshness and minerality. The cuvée is also blended with still red wine (produced from maceration of the skins and pulp of the grapes) from a parcel nestled in the heart of the Aÿ Cru. Depending on the year, it represents 8% to 10% of the blend. The Brut Rosé features around 60% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay, and 10% Meunier, followed by at least 3 years of aging and a dosage of 7g/L.

Owner of a vineyard in the heart of the Montagne de Reims, Apolline has a deep love for the Champagne region, the beauty of its vines and its landscapes. This is how her desire « To to shed light on her lands through a Champagne » was born.
She then founded the House and created the first Henriot cuvée, now known as Henriot Brut Souverain.
