Family-owned Champagne house Champagne Henriot has unveiled their top cuvee Hemera 2006 vintage in Hong Kong with their local importer Kerry Wines. Named after the Greek goddess of light, the cuvee is a blend of six grand cru vineyards in the family that are described by the house’s president and eighth generation member, Gilles de Larouzière, as “cornerstones” of the family.
With 50% Chardonnay sourced from Côte des Blancs, specifically from Chouilly, Avize and Mesnil-sur-Oger, the rest of the Pinot Noir grapes were from the north of the Montagne de Reims, from Mailly Champagne, Verzy and Verzenay. The wine is aged on lees for 12 years before release.
This is also the first Hemera vintage released under a new chef de cave Alice Tétienne, who joined the house in 2019 after a stint at Krug.
