Symbol of the precise, elegant style of Champagne Henriot’s wines, Brut Souverain appeals with its nose of white flower and citrus fruit notes, then with a balanced, harmonious palate. An ideal aperitif.

Expert Reviews

A fruit-focused style of attractive stonefruit and citrus concentration, with subtle notes of roast nuts from time on lees. The dosage shows a little on the finish, but lingering citrus zest holds out.

Rating 91 - Tyson Stelzer, The Champagne Guide 2012 - 2013

A very fine and elegant nose - quite pertty - with white florals, strawberries and other wild red fruits, very alluring and with the meret hints of savoury brioche. The palate's more citrusy, with zesty lemon flavours, some peach and nectarine stone fruits, and a precise, sherbet-like citrusy finish. Rating 91 - Nick Stock, Good Wine Guide 2012

Winery Tasting Notes


Brut Souverain is made up of a balanced proportion of Chardonnay, in the majority from the Cote des Blancs, and Pino Noir, mostly from the Montagne de Reims. A small percentage of Pinot Meunier adds a delicate fruit note to the wine. Brut Souverain is composed of 20% reserve wines. More than 25 crus are blended, including the following: Msnil sur Ogner, Oger, Avize, Cramant, Chouilly, Ay, Verzy, Verzenay, Beaumont, Sillery, Mailly Champagne. The composition of Brut Souverain changes from year to year to take account of climate variations to perpetuate House style.


The coulour is characterised by a brilliant light straw gold. Effervescence is dense and persistent with fine, regular bubbles.


Initially the nose is precise, expressive and refreshing with notes of citrus and yellow fruit; flower fragrances (vine flowers, elderflowers) and pastry aromas (brioche, toast, grilled almond) follow.


A lively, fresh and balanced attack, with pastry, spice (vanilla) and fruity (morello cherry, candied plum) notes. The full texture precedes a clean, refreshing fnishi marked by citrus fruit aromas.

Food Matching

Winery Profile

Since 1808, Champagne Henriot, one of the last independent and family-owned houses in Champagne, has pursued a tradition of excellence – a fragile balance between delicacy, intensity, and purity. For seven generations, the family has selected only the very best vineyards, concentrated on the purity of chardonnay and has upheld the utmost respect for time in order to ensure the cuvee has an opportunity to reach its full expression.

A unique elegance, a chiseled style From the first standards established by Apolline Henriot, who founded the house in 1808, Henriot champagnes have been distinguished by their finesse, exceptional elegance, complexity and striking, brilliant richness.

The assemblage

The choices made in blending perpetuate the house style: chardonnay reigns in proportion (fifty to sixty percent). It brings finesse, elegance, richness and freshness. Pinot noir gives essential structure. Pinot meunier contributes fruit complexity. Non vintage wines may contain as many as fifty different crus in precisely orchestrated balance, with roughly twenty percent reserve wines. It is again Champagne Henriot’s task to impart a distinct personality to its wines. These wines, which may be a decade in age and are tasted at least every three months, comprise the house’s library, guaranteeing the perpetuity of its style.
