The House of Henriot is one of the rare Champagne houses that have stayed in the same family for over two hundred years. It draws its freedom to make the most audacious choices from its spirit of independence.
The exceptional proportion of wines from Premier Cru and Grand Cru vineyards, the ageing times and the quantity of reserve wines used in producing each blend illustrate the demanding standards that are only possible thanks to the freedom to make decisions, years of experience and the imagination to create the future.
The house known as Les Aulnois, built in 1778, is still the heart and soul of the Henriot family. It lies in the centre of the village of Pierry, at the foot of the Chardonnay slopes planted centuries ago.
With its vaulted cellars, its French formal garden and its Metamorphosis salon, Les Aulnois combines the art of hospitality with the intimacy of a family home.
The airy elegance of Les Aulnois is the setting for the most memorable tastings of Henriot champagnes.
