The quintessence of the Henriot style, this cuvée is dominated by the chardonnay giving elegance and complex structure. In respect with the family tradition, this cuvée, from the finest vineyards in Champagne, is only produced 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.

Assemblage
To enhance the remarkable character of the 1998 vintage, Champagne Henriot has blended the strength of the pinot noir and the elegance of the chardonnay. We have chosen grapes 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.
50% chardonnay - 50% pinot noir

Comments
On the eye: Pale gold with fine effervescence and an attractive cordon of mousse.
On the nose: Discreet notes of candied citrus, hazelnut and pastries enhance a bouquet dominated by honey. The nose is ripe, very fine, a sign of attractive aromatic evolution.
On the palate: This mature, well balanced, elegant wine has a lively, frank attack typical of the great vintages. Roasted, toasty aromas, butter and pastry together with fragrances of citrus and wild peach create rich, aromatic complexity leading on to flavours of honey and delicate exotic notes. The length is superb with aromas of pastries, fine touches of hazelnut and honey to complete this magnificent “cuvee”.
