In 1640, the Henriot family settled in Champagne and developed their draper business, then quickly launched into the wine trade. Over the generations, the family invested in vineyards and acquired expertise in Champagne viticulture.
In 1808, Apolline Henriot founded the Maison de Champagne Henriot, creating the first cuvée known today as Henriot Brut Souverain. Over time, the family incorporated crus from the Côte des Blancs into its vineyard, contributing to the diversity of its champagnes. The family members, trained as agricultural engineers, also strengthened the care given to the vine.
Maison Henriot has always valued knowledge of soils, carrying out soil studies in the 1920s. In addition to preserving traditions, the family has enriched the House's collection of reserve wines over the generations.
Today, Gilles de Larouzière Henriot, eighth generation of the family, is the guarantor of the sustainability of Maison Henriot as president of the Maisons & Domaines Henriot group.
