PRODUCER BACKGROUND

Brut Souverain is made up of a balanced proportion of Chardonnay, the majority from the Côte des Blancs, and Pinot Noir, mostly from the Montagne de Reims. Pinot Meunier adds a delicate fruity note. More than 25 crus are assembled, including the following village crus: Mesnil sur Oger, Oger, Avize, Cramant, Chouilly, Aÿ, Verzy, Verzenay, Beaumont, Sillery, Mailly Champagne. The composition of Brut Souverain changes from year to year to take account of climate variations and to perpetuate House style. The Henriot family’s hallmark of richness, elegance and depth is maintained in part by exceptionally high standards regarding its reserve wines. The Brut Souverain benefits from an addition of up to 20% reserve wines from a number of different vintages in the Champagne Henriot library; one of the largest percentages of reserve wines in Champagne
