In 1808, when Apolline Henriot founded the House, her vineyards were located in the heart of the Montagne de Reims in
the crus of Verzy, Verzenay and Mailly-Champagne. In 1880, thanks to the marriage of Paul Henriot (4th generation of the family) and Marie Marguet, a young girl from the
Côte des Blancs, three more crus have joined the Henriot vineyards: Avize, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Chouilly. As a symbol of this union of Terroirs, the Henriot family decided to create a Champagne named Henriot Cuvée Hemera.
The quintessence of six prestigious Grands Crus villages that embody Maison Henriot are selected to make the blend (Mailly-Champagne, Verzy, Verzenay, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Avize and Chouilly) with their most representatives parcels for 2006.
Beyond the expression of a unique vintage, Cuvée Hemera spends at least 12 years ageing in the darkness of our cellars, after few months ageing in tank before bottling in order to reveal its stunning complexity as well as perfect balance.
