Assemblage: Chardonnay (50%), Pinot Noir (50%)

97 points Decanter

fff the straight vintage Henriot (always among the best, and best value, '96s) the prestige Enchanteleurs is very much in that mouthwateringly mineral style. There is even better purity and precision here thanks to use of the best Grand Cru grapes. Though the blend is 50/50 Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the great white grape shines, especially the late Joseph Henriot's favourite parcel of Chouilly Les Partelaines. Secondary notes of butter, hazelnut and peach confit lurk within the mineral frame. Tops! (ME) 

97 points Wine Enthusiast

With all the extreme intensity of this vintage, this wine brings even more. The start of cookie yeast and toast character, a vibrant mineral texture, hints of spice, green herbs and a final white peach flavor. It is still young, just keep aging. *Cellar Selection* (RV) (12/2010)

97 points Wine Spectator

Tight-grained, with an immediate impression of the sea before forest floor and citrus notes take over. This is bright and fresh, with plenty of spice, toast and candied berry flavors, backed by a firm structure. The finish just keeps going. Best from 2012 through 2040. (BS) (6/2010)
