91 points Tyson Stelzer (The Champagne Guide): "(2011 base vintage; disgorged March 2016; 50% chardonnay, largely from the Côte des Blancs, particularly Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger, Avize, Cramant and Chouilly; 50% pinot, mostly from the Montagne de Reims, particularly Ay, Verzy, Verzenay, Beaumont, Sillery and Mailly-Champagne; 20% reserves; aged 3 years on lees.) Henriot's entry cuvée lands pre-charged with impressive, toasty bottle age, yet holding admirable vibrancy and energy thanks to its strong Côte des Blancs chardonnay lead. Lemon, red apple and white peach fruit are well progressed into the spectrum of toasty, nutty maturity, culminating in a lively finish of well-defined acid and integrated dosage. A faint hint of dry dustiness interrupts otherwise seamless flow. (2018-2019)"

91 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The new bottling in the market of Henriot “Brut Souverain” is composed of a blend of fifty percent chardonnay, forty-five percent pinot noir and five percent pinot meunier. It spent three years aging sur latte and was finished with a dosage of less than eight grams per liter. The wine offers up a vibrant and precise bouquet of apple, pear, plenty of smokiness, chalky soil tones, fresh-baked bread and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and fairly youthful in structure, with bright acids, lovely focus and grip, a good core, elegant mousse and a long, nascently complex finish. This non-vintage cuvée has a fine record of aging in my cellar and I would not hesitate to tuck this away for a few years and really let it blossom completely. 2019-2040+. (May/Jun 2019)"

91 points Wine Spectator: "A touch of vanilla-laced pastry cream sweetness accents this fresh and focused Champagne, with a fine mousse. This is well-balanced by crunchy acidity and flavors of lemon peel, green pear and spring blossom. Drink now through 2022. (11/30/19)"

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "The standard nonvintage from this producer benefits from its policy of blending in a high percentage of older reserve wines. That gives the wine its richness and smooth, ripe character. Hints of apples are still there along with a good balance between acidity and toastiness. Drink now. (Aug 2018)"
