Apolline Henriot, founded Maison Henriot in 1808 with the desire to shed light on her lands through a Champagne. She had a deep love for the Champagne region, the beauty of its vines and its landscapes. While Apolline wanted to express her whole vineyard with Henriot Brut Souverain, through the blend of several crus and years, she also wanted to pay tribute to nature through a vintage Champagne, Henriot Millésime, which is the interpretation of a singular year by the House. Eight generations of the family have perpetuated Apolline’s desire and savoir-faire. Today, the House is delighted to unveil its new creation: Henriot Millésime 2012.

Eight generations of the Henriot family have contributed to create the Maison Henriot’s Mémoires collection by carefully cellaring the bottles. A century after crafting of the first vintage of this collection, the Millésime 1921, Gilles de Larouzière Henriot had the desire to share with the world this legacy and his family’s savoir-faire, which represents a piece of the history of Champagne.
“The Henriot Mémoires Collection embodies specific years, through the Cuvées des Enchanteleurs, a blend of the House’s six founding crus, and the Millésimes, expression of the singular caracter of one year. The vintages we chose to release are guided by the tasting and the emotion that it brings”.

Champagne Henriot is very proud to release the new Cuvée Hemera 2006.
For several years, Maison Henriot has been working on finding a perfect balance between freshness and character. The Cuvée Hemera, named after the Greek Goddess of Daylight, is one of the finest expressions of this quest.
In ancient Greek times, Hemera would unveil night to reveal the day’s first rays of light.
It embodies the quintessence of Henriot style and symbolises the passage from the darkness of the cellars, where time weaves its magic, to the radiant brightness of the tasting.

“The early growth, coupled with the Covid health crisis, shook up our habits and setup. The sanitary measures made the work more difficult and distressing, however the results of all these efforts are in: the harvest went very well and will make a beautiful 2020 vintage. Thank you and bravo to all, this harvest will doubtlessly be remembered!»
“A key outcome of this 2020 harvest for Maison Henriot is the great need for observation in the vineyard in order to harvest grapes that meet its requirements and that highlight the Terroirs, as Apolline, founder of Maison Henriot in 1808, wanted.»
