The 2006 Cuvée Hemera, Henriot's top wine, is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir sourced exclusively from Grand Cru vineyards. Toasty and open-knit, with soft contours, the 2006 is an alluring Champagne that will drink well upon release. Baked apple tart, brioche, lemon confit, spice, vanillin and a classic touch of reduction add character throughout. All the elements come together so effortlessly.
