Since its first bottling, a new edition of Henriot Cuve 38 is created each year. The 5th edition of Henriot Cuve 38 is composed of wines from every successive harvests from 1990 to 2011. These wines are exclusively from 4 Grands Crus of Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs: Avize, Le Mesnil-Sur-Oger, Oger, Chouilly. It is during the tastings of the clear wines that follow the vinification of the last harvest that the selection of the wines that will integrate the perpetual reserve vat Cuve 38 is made. The wines selected are those that will last over time, those whose freshness surprises and those whose precision and distinction prevail.
