Henriot Blanc de Blancs:
Pale lemon yellow, tiny bubbles. Bit tight, minerals and cool rainy morning nose, some lime and green apples, touch of autolyses. Fresh acidity, elegant mousse, nuanced, quite rounded for a Blanc de Blancs, has finesse and nunaces, again a subued feel, lovely balance, smooth. 89

2003 Henriot Brut Vintage:
Pale lemon yellow, tiny bubbles. Apples, yellow fruits note, minerals, elegant and nuanced, a cool nuanced nose for 03. Fairly fresh acidity, fruity mousse, rounded, quite elegant even if not the freshest, rounded, a Champagne for those who feel Champagne is too acidic or sour. Good length. 89

2000 Henriot Brut Vintage:

2000 Henriot Brut Vintage:
(Magnum) Kind of late release as Henriot keeps the vintage in magnum longer before release than the regular bottle. Towards lemon yellow, tiny bubbles. Tighter nose in one way, but also a bit more autolyses character and maybe more yeasty. Burnt bread and grilled lemons over flinty minerals. Fresh acidity, lively mousse, leaner palate and minerals backbone, long. 90

2005 Henriot Rosé Brut:
Ever so slightly pinkish pale golden, tiny bubbles. Apples, minerals, rounded nose, maybe some red berries behind there if you look hard. Floral. Fresh acidity, mineralic mousse and backbone, leaner palate, very minerals and cool and fresh nose, delicate, bit tight maybe, long. 90

1995 Henriot Cuvée des Enchanteleurs:
Towards lemon yellow, tiny bubbles. Some oxidized apples, nuts, flinty minerals, maturing nose. Fresh acidity, tight mousse, fruity, tight, fresh, has been open for four hours, so not as tight as when opened (I'm told). Long. 92

1995 Henriot Cuvée des Enchanteleurs:
(Magnum) Not yet released in magnum. Towards lemon yellow, tiny bubbles. Tight, minerals, flinty, lime and unripe apples nose, focused and youthful, ever so slight burnt bread note far behind.
