Symbol of the elegant style of Champagne Henriot’s wines, Brut Souverain appeals with its nose of white flower and citrus fruit notes, then with a balanced, harmonious palate. An ideal partner for aperitif. Brut Souverain is made up of a balanced proportion of Chardonnay, in 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: 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. Brut Souverain is composed of 20% reserve wines.

Wine Profile
Ratings
93 points Wine Enthusiast This is great Champagne, in the bottle-aged Henriot style. It’s a classic Chardonnay, ripe, creamy, packed with yellow fruits, and finely balanced with a great waft of toast. A high percentage of older vintages in the blend gives this wine richness, maturity, without ever losing its crisp edge. (12/ 2009) 92 points Wine Spectator This rich Champagne offers notes of roasted hazelnut, brioche and smoke, layered with vibrant acidity and a fine mousse to create an overall sense of finesse. The bright hints of black currant, poached quince, pickled ginger and licorice are fresh and juicy, lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2023. (10/ 2013) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Featuring, as usual for this cuvee, a relatively high proportion of Chardonnay; no Meunier; and 15-20% reserve wine, Henriot’s NV Brut Souverain Disg. 4/2012 offers a delightfully crunchy-yet-creamy, slaw-like amalgam of fresh apple, celery root, grapefruit and almond, to which a whiff of elder flower adds aromatic allure. The lush mid-palate takes a faintly oily turn even as tart citricity wells up with greater impact, leading to a luscious finish that irresistibly urges one take the next sip. I fancy this being best enjoyed over the coming year. (11/ 2013) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Light gold. Red berries, orange peel and a toasty nuance on the perfumed nose. Chewy redcurrant and citrus fruit flavors show good depth, with a smoky mineral nuance providing lift. Closes spicy and long, with repeating smokiness and a touch of anise. This cuvee includes about 20% reserve wine. (12/ 2013)
