Henriot is a Champagne house with a rich heritage. Created in 1808 by Apolline Henriot, the 200 year old independent and family run house is a Champagne connoisseur's secret. In the modern era they have excelled, garnering a wealth of awards and plaudits. Head wine-maker Laurent Fresnet was named “Sparkling Winemaker of the year” in 2015 and 2016, and Henriot received the Len Evans trophy in 2018 from the International Wine Challenge. Stylistically a far cry from the overly manipulated wines of many other "Grandes Marques", the Henriot style is one of elegance and finesse, with the focus on precision and minerality. One of the keys to Henriot's consistency is the quality of their Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyard growers in the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims.
