Champagne Henriot

Champagne Henriot

In 1640, the Henriot family settled in Champagne and developed their cloth merchant business, then quickly ventured 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 integrated vineyards in the Côte des Blancs into their estate, contributing to the diversity of their champagnes. Family members, trained as agricultural engineers, also enhanced the care given to the vineyards.

Maison Henriot has always valued knowledge of the soils, conducting pedological studies in the 1920s. In addition to preserving traditions, the family has enriched the Maison's collection of reserve wines over the generations.

Today, Gilles de Larouzière Henriot, the eighth generation of the family, ensures the continuity of Maison Henriot as the president of the Maisons & Domaines Henriot group.
