The composition of Brut Souverain changes from year to year to take account of climate variations and to perpetuate House style.
It is composed of 20% reserve wines.
It is in the quiet, dark Henriot cellars in Reims that the bottles remain for 3 years.
On the eye: The colour is characterised by a brilliant light straw-gold. Effervescence is dense and persistent, with fine, regular bubbles.
On the nose: Initially the nose is precise, expressive and refreshing, with notes of citrus and yellow fruit; floral fragrances (vine flowers, elderflowers) and pastry aromas (brioche, toast, grilled almond) follow.
On the palate: A lively, fresh and balanced attack, with pastry, spice (vanilla) and fruity (morello cherry, candied plum) notes. The full texture precedes a clean, refreshing finish marked by citrus fruit aromas.
With aperitif, cold entrées, fish, charcuterie.
