The new cuvée from Marie-Noelle and Nicolas is about respect.
Respect for the founders and ancestors of the winery:
It all started with Gaston Henriet, Marie-Noelle's great-grandfather. He owned vineyards in Verzenay that were mainly planted with Pinot Noir and, like almost all of them at the time, sold his grapes to the cooperative. In 1890 he decided to produce champagne under his own name and Champagne Henriet was born.
There was a generation on the side of the later married-in Bazin winery, another key figure: Louise. Louise had a great love for the Chardonnay vines and vineyards in Villers-Marmery and looked after them with great devotion as if it were her own garden.
These two people form the backbone of today's Champagane Henriet-Bazin winery and Nicolas and Marie Noelle try to follow the ideals established at the time with carefully introduced innovations.
This cuvée is also about respect for nature and its processes, which you have to understand in order to create a cuvée that is so coherent in itself that it does not require a dosage.
This cuvée, made in equal parts from Pinot Noir (Gaston) and Chardonnay (Louise), is dedicated to these two important people, whose work and passion have shaped the perspective of the two winemakers and laid the foundation for their appreciation and attention to nature.
The tadem on the label means that you don't necessarily have to be faster as a couple, but you can certainly get further :)
Tasting MRZ21: Very little attack, Pinot takes the stage first, the aroma melts at the back and the fresher, more elegant Chardonnay prevails, nice nutty finish. Straight but not too sparse despite the zero dosage, because of the vinous, pinot-fruity aroma. Powerful. lively and juicy!
Tasting JUL21: Very juicy, strong drinking flow, high quality fruit, nice mix of red fruits and mature yellow fruit, straight, spicy and aromatic, consistent, restrained acidity, very nice nutty finish, crisp, develops more complex flavors over time
