About the wine

Henri Giraud is ultimately prestigious Champagne with limited production, made from 100% AY Grand cru, vinified and aged in tailor-made Local oak barrel for 1 year, and aged in the bottle for 7-8 years. The wine is already well mature when it is released, we experience complexity, depth and long finish that no other Champagne offers. This is the high-end Champagne for high-end wine connoisseurs, called Rolls-Royce of Champagnes

Ranking WS 94/100

Described by leading wine critic Robert Parker as “the finest Champagne house virtually no one has ever heard of”.

Palate - The complex aromas of red fruits are compliment by a limestone minerality, crisp acidity and a lingering finish.

Classic Food Pairing

Great match with white meats or even fish in creamy sauce.

Sichuan, Thai Food, Spicy food.

Background Winery

Claude Giraud, the owner of Maison Henri Giraud Champagne, has launched an appeal to the big-name Champagne houses to use more local oak in the production of their wines. Giraud was speaking at a tasting of his base wines to demonstrate the results of 20 years of research into the effects of soils and microclimates on oak used in barrel-making. Giraud is the only Champagne house to use only barrels sourced locally, from the Argonne forest, which was once the source of almost all oak used in Champagne making. We highly recommend the wines of this small house based in famous grand cru Aÿ.
