Characteristic pale golden colour. A seductive mineral nose with some white flower notes. Medium bodied with crisp acidity and good minerality, ending with a fruity citrus finish. A classic white Burgundy offering great value.
A fine, subtle and open bouquet with notes of ripe fruits and floral tones. Rich on the palate, this is a rounded and well-balanced wine, absolutely delicious.

Padouën create a rich, concentrated, golden-coloured Sauternes that has notes of honey, dried apricots and almonds with some tangy acidity to add balance.
Pale yellow in color with a touch of green in the glass. The bouquet has hints of French oak, orange blossom, white peach, lemon zest and hazelnut praline. The palate is full with a medley of citrus fruit, balanced acidity and well integrated oak

Inviting nose of citrus and bright minerality, together with discreet vanilla notes. Opens into a palate of grapefruit, wet stone and a hint of vanilla cream. This wine continue to benefit from bottle age, drink now to 2020.
Symbol of the precise and elegant style of Champagne Henriot’s wines. Brut Souverain appeals with its nose of white flower and citrus fruit notes. A lively, fresh and balanced attack, with pastry, spice (vanilla) and fruity (morello cherry, candied plum) flavours. A clean and refreshing finish with great length and persistence.
