Currently owned by the Freixenet group, Henri Abelé is a prestigious Champagne brand with a history that goes back more than 250 years.
Henri Abelé Brut is one of the best products of this highly respected, traditional Champagne maison. This sparkling wine is made from a traditional blend of Chardonnay (40%), Pinot Noir (35%) and Pinot Meunier (25%), all of them coming from the best crus located in the Marne Valley.
After a meticulous vinification process, the wine was aged on its lees for three years. The result is a classic, exemplary Champagne.
Henri Abelé Brut has a clean, bright, straw yellow colour with greenish tinges.
Prominent notes of ripe fruit, particularly apricot compote. Some remembrances of citrus, a dash of aromatic herbs, notions of pastry and toast, and hints of dry fruit, meringue and custard sauce.
Creamy and smoothy, with tiny, wonderfully integrated bubbles and a great acidity. On the palate this Champagne displays notes of butter, ripe yellow fruit, some mineral undertones and hints of pastry. Long, refreshing, bittersweet finish.
