Reviews

Wine Advocate

93 Points, William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Henriot's newly released 2006 Brut Cuvée Hemera is showing very nicely, offering up aromas of wheat toast, crisp stone fruit, dried white flowers, smoke and iodine. Medium to full-bodied, rich and enveloping, with a generous core of fruit, bright acids and a pretty pinpoint mousse, it concludes with a mouthwateringly sapid finish. The cuvée's rather reductive style marries well with the inherent opulence of the vintage, and it marks a notable step up over the inaugural 2005 in depth and concentration." 09/21

Antonio Galloni

92 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2006 Cuvée Hemera, Henriot's top wine, is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir sourced exclusively from Grand Cru vineyards. Toasty and open-knit, with soft contours, the 2006 is an alluring Champagne that will drink well upon release. Baked apple tart, brioche, lemon confit, spice, vanillin and a classic touch of reduction add character throughout. All the elements come together so effortlessly." 11/20

James Suckling

93 Points, James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com: "A very mature release with a wealth of strawberry and raspberry, as well as peach and some toasty grilled-almond notes. Baked pastry, too. The palate is so smooth with peaches and pastry and nicely integrated acidity. A sleek phenolic run to the finish. Fresh and layered. Drink now." 10/20
