Cuve 38

A VISIONARY MOVE

In 1990, Joseph Henriot had a vision that resulted in Cuve 38. He decided to set aside in a single vat – Cuve 38– a blend made up exclusively from four of the finest Chardonnay Grand Crus: Chouilly, Avize, Oger and Mesnil-sur-Oger. Each year, a portion of outstanding Blanc de Blancs is added to the vat, capturing the essence of every harvest. In so doing, Joseph Henriot has created a perpetual blend both complex and rare only avaialble in magnum.

THE QUINTESSENCE
OF Chardonnay

Tasting reveals an exceptionally fresh minerality, enhanced by the significant proportion of reserve wines, with the promise of excellent cellaring potential.

The nose expresses freshness with delicate citrus fruit and white fleshed peach notes. The freshness continues on the palate with great clarity as the lemon hint continues and melts into notes of buttery brioche. Beautiful length and wonderfully rounded in the mouth.
