About the Wine
Founded in 1757, Henri Abelé is one of the oldest Maisons in Champagne. It is home to an age-old “savoir-faire”; its 250-year-old heritage combined with carefully considered choices, guided by a love of champagne and the very highest standards. This is a champagne house of integrity, which has always remained true to its convictions, eschewing the fads and fashions that have come and gone in the Champagne region over the years.
Henri Abelé has been working in close partnership with “artisan-vignerons”, chosen for the quality of their work, for over 30 years. This important close collaboration contributes to the continuity of the style and excellence of the Henri Abelé champagnes. Achieving the exceptional requires patience! At Henri Abelé, the distinctiveness of its champagne making is the result of late blending at perfect maturity and very long cellar-aging - well beyond the minimum aging period required by the Champagne regulations
Made from the best crus in Champagne, Brut Traditionnel is ready to drink after three years of aging under ideal conditions, away from light and variations in temperature.
“The work carried out to make the non-vintage Brut could be compared with that of a mosaic artist. A whole host of terroirs are vinified separately, and then I select the plots that go to make up the end result. It is painstaking work, where each piece has to slot into the final picture. The reserve wines add maturity and the wines of the year bring freshness and fruit, resulting in a balanced composition.” -Franck Nicaise, Cellar Master

Tasting note: Sparkling Wine. 40% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir, 30% Pinot Meunier. Attractive deep color. Fine, persistent bubbles. A symphony of fruity aromas, especially strawberry and raspberry. The aromas carry over onto the palate, which is smooth with all the fruitiness and finesse one would hope for in pink Champagne. Roasted notes on the aftertaste, with just the right amount of dosage. Perfect for the aperitif or with a first course.
