The Oddbins Take

I don't know about you, but I hate being told to have fun. When the MC gets on the mic to ask "are we having a good time?" my answer is usually "I was, till you started shouting about it…" Sometimes pink fizz can be a bit like that. Henriot, on the other hand is that little bit subtler, more discreet. "Yes I am having a good time, thank you very much. Now let's just shut up and savour its ephemerally delicate, fresh perfume and red-fruited charm…"

Heaven in a glass, Review by littlemisspenfold

This small producer rose Champagne is just superb and definitely now my preferred choice when needing something pink and fizzy to impress. Fine bubbles and an array of delicate red fruit flavours make this the epitome of sophistication.

Henry Jefferies in The Lady 7/2/14: "Rosé champagne can sometimes be an expensive let-down so I was particularly taken with this one. It’s toasty and meaty with lots of strawberries and a little orange peel."

Jane MacQuitty in The Times 8/2/14: "Pink champagne is usually dismissed as the pretty pop that Edwardians slurped from dancers' slippers, but serious rosé champagnes do exist - and this is one. Henriot rosé is a brilliant example of why family-run champagne houses are a good thing. Any of you celebrating Valetine's Day with this seductive rosé's bright, lemony scent and long, creamy, spicy finish (it's a blend of chardonnay and pinots noir and meunier, with a dash of red wine for colour) will have a wonderful time. Great now, or tuck away until February 14 next year for even more toasty-yeasty flavours."

The Champagne comes from one of the oldest family-owned houses in Champagne, enjoying seven generations of uninterrupted ownership since the late 1700s. Champagne Henriot's Rosé Brut is obtained by adding Pinot Noir vinified as a red wine to the assemblage. Rosé Brut is made up of a majority of Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims and Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs. More than 15 crus are blended, including the following vilage crus: Avize, Chouilly, Mareuil sur Aÿ, Verzy, Verzenay, Avenay, Vertus, Trépail and Epernay. A small percentage of Pinot Meunier adds a delicate fruit note to the wine.
