Flagship product of the house HENRIOT, this Blanc de Blancs pleases with its complexity and amazing length. The great freshness makes it wonderful as an aperitif but also at the table.
The term “Blanc de Blancs” (literally “White of whites” ) evokes a champagne elaborated exclusively from white juice coming from white skin grapes. Therefore Pinot Noir grape variety cannot be used, being it a black skin grape; Chardonnay is the most common grape variety for the production of Champagne Blanc de Blancs.
However, few others grape varieties such as Pinot Blanc or Arbane are also authorized, and can be part of the cuvee blending; that’s where the S in “Blanc de Blancs” comes from.
Conversely, we speak of Champagne "Blanc de Noirs" when it is elaborated only from black skin grapes with white juice (Pinot Noir or Pinot Meunier grape varieties).
