MAISON HENRIOT ROSE MILLESIME 2012
Country: France, Champagne
Grape Varieties: 100% Premier and Grand Cru wines 45% chardonnay 55% pinot noir
Henriot Rosé is one of the House’s most unexpected creations. After several years of testing, this cuvée officially joined Henriot’s Champagne collection in the early 1980s, with the 7th generation of the family. Henriot Rosé is a quest for singular aromas, obtained by blending specific vintages and years.

Tasting Note: The pleasure is palpable, full-flavoured and bursting with light. Perfect for those impromptu pre-meal moments, to accompany the last embers of sunlight in its coral reflections. The ultimate Champagne stimulates both mind and palate before a meal.

Food Pairing: Accompany rare veal medallions or simply poached turbot

The Grape
Champagne Blend
Which grapes are included in the blend, and their proportion, is one of the key factors determining the style of most Champagnes. Three grapes are used - Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier.

26% of vineyards in Champagne are planted with Chardonnay and it performs best on the Côtes des Blancs and on the chalk slopes south of Epernay. It is relatively simple to grow, although it buds early and thus is susceptible to spring frosts. It produces lighter, fresher wines than those from Burgundy and gives finesse, fruit and elegance to the final blend. It is the sole grape in Blancs de Blancs, which are some of the richest long-lived Champagnes produced.

Pinot Noir accounts for nearly 40% of the plantings in Champagne and lies at the heart of most blends - it gives Champagne its body, structure, strength and grip. It is planted across Champagne and particularly so in the southern Aube district.

The final component is Pinot Meunier and this constitutes nearly 35% of the plantings. Its durability and resistance to spring frosts make the Marne Valley, a notorious frost pocket, its natural home. It ripens well in poor years and produces a soft, fruity style of wine that is ideal for blending with the more assertive flavours of Pinot Noir.
