The son of a wine grower, Laurent Fresnet has won the International Wine Challenge “Sparkling Winemaker of the Year” award for two successive years, in 2015 and again in 2016. He won the special award «The Len Evans Trophy, for consistency over 5 years» in 2018. Laurent arrived for the harvest in 2005 and now encapsulates the Henriot House style in every champagne, with a true expression of terroir. Henriot is a Chardonnay dominant Champagne house, producing some of the finest blancs that are precise, elegant and luminous. Laurent Fresnet favours a spirit of collegiality in all decisions involving the wine growers and collaborators of Champagne Henriot.
The finest Blancs de Champagne are at the heartof the history, the vines and the very essence of Maison Henriot. The champagne house incorporates an
exceptionally high proportion of Premiers and Grands Crus in its cuvées, which come from the best Chardonnay parcels.
The Henriot family nurtures a special affinity for these wines grown on soils where the chalk is purest and which gives the wines an intriguing and iodine minerality. These terroirs also convey the promise for outstanding longevity. The brilliance of this fresh and intense maturity reaches its height with the Cuve 38, an incarnation of the ultimate and virtuoso expression of these Grands Blancs de Champagne.
The cuvée Blanc de Blancs, both pure and delicious, continues this pleasure.
Laurent Fresnet, Cellar Master, oversees the selection of the finest crus from the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vineyards for Henriot Champagnes.DISCOVER
