The Brut Souverain of the Champagne House Henriot has a bright and sparkling golden straw-coloured robe. Its effervescence offers persistent and fine bubbles. On the nose, a fragrance of citrus fruit and yellow fruit surprises by its freshness and character. Afterwards, more floral notes (flowers of the vineyards) and pastry aromas (bun, toasted bread and almonds) enhance the scent of the bouquet. On the palate, the attack surprises by its boldness and vibrant freshness. Rich flavours of pastries, vanilla and fruits are emphasised. This structured champagne closes on a refreshing finish and citrus notes.
