Henriot Brut Rosé NV
Pale pink in appearance and tinged with copper, with a fine and persistent bead in the glass.
On the nose, this Champagne may surprise with its characteristic, complex intensity and appealing fruit-driven style. Red and dark berry fruit aromas of raspberry, strawberry and crunchy cherry, followed by freshly squeezed lemon, pink grapefruit and mandarin orange. Vegetal notes then follow in succession, offering blackcurrant bud and cloves, together with delicate iris-scented powder and finishing on delicious notes of candid fruits.
Well-balanced on the palate, revealing incredible, unashamed persistence. Attractive balsamic and floral flavours pave the way for spicy notes, in a wave of great freshness.
The tasting culminates in a lingering touch of sweetness
