Release Price $175 A perfect illustration of Maison Henriot's mastery of the assemblage, this cuvee is composed in equal parts of pinot noir and chardonnay, conferring elegance on its complex structure. Produced with respect for family tradition, this cuvee - which comes exclusively from Champagne's Grands Crus - is made only in exceptional years.   The name "Enchanteleur" borne by this rare wine refers to the cellar workers in the days when vinification was carried out only in barrels. Their work consisted in particular of piling up the casks on wooden beams. It was said that they "put the casks on chantiers (gantries)", that they "enchantelaient"... They traditionally enjoyed the privilege of making for themselves a small Champagne cuvee produced from the finest wines.   To enhance the remarkable character of the 2000 vintage, Champagne Henriot has blended the strength of the Pinot Noir and the elegance of the Chardonnay. Grapes chosen from 6 of the most prestigious "Grands Crus" in Champagne : Mailly Champagne, Verzy, Verzenay on Montagne de Reims, Mesnil-sur-Oger, Avize, Chouilly on Côte des Blancs.   Some Notes from the Domaine On the eye: pale gold with fine effervescence and an attractive cordon of mousse.
On the nose: fresh and mineral, with notes of blood peach and mirabelle plum.
On the palate: entry both lively and fresh. Great balance and hints of dried apricots, with a complex finish both smoky and honeyed.
