Champagne Henri Giraud: The greatest Champagne you’ve never heard of

Nestled in the village of Aÿ in France, the Domaine Henri Giraud sprawls across 10 hectares of the Giraud family’s vineyards and 15 hectares of land belonging to suppliers, partners and family friends.

Described by Robert Parker as ‘the greatest Champagne you’ve never heard of’, the estate is run by 12th generation owner Claude Giraud, who took over from his father, Henri, in 1983 and this under-the-radar gem is driven by a philosophy of heritage, quality and integrity, and above all a commitment to the sustainability of the Argonne Forest.

The Argonne Forest

Located just 56km from the estate, The Argonne Forest is, in many ways the genesis of the wondrous cuvées that are produced at Henri Giraud, and the houses' commitment to its preservation is a perpetual source of inspiration.

Not only is the Forest an environmental concern it is the primary source of the oak that is responsible for injecting flavour and aromatic nuances to each cuvée, adding richness, complexity and beauty.

ABOUT henri giraud
France
NV
Champagne
A blend of Chardonnay from Aÿ and the Montage de Reims, there is aromas of citrus oil, fresh pear and linden blossom. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, vinous and satiny mtextured, with a delicate mousse, ripe but racy acids and a saline finish. Charming and structurally open-knit, it's already drinking well.

Henri Giraud, Hommage au Pinot Noir NV 750ml

ABOUT Henri Giraud
France
NV
Champagne
Rich, ample and creamy, the Hommage is so expressive today. 100% Pinot Noir done in an unusual style that sees eleven months in oak followed by six months in tank, an approach that is much more common for white Burgundy. Red plum, kirsch, mint, chamomile and spice melding together effortlessly, the Hommage is rich and generous, but is also light on its feet. Disgorged: September 21, 2020.

ABOUT HENRI GIRAUD

Champagne
The latest release of Giraud's NV Brut Rosé Dame-Jane is showing very well, unfurling from the glass with complex aromas of red plums, cinnamon, orange zest, warm bran and smoke. On the palate, it's full-bodied, broad and textural, with all the house's signature vinosity, displaying superb depth at the core, ripe but racy acids and beautiful balance despite its muscular, textural style, concluding with a sapid finish.

ABOUT Henri Giraud
France
NV
Champagne
The Giraud family’s most carefully preserved heirloom for many generations, representing both a secret and a legacy for the Domaine. PR 90-18 is a blend of two of the Domaine's perpetual reserves - one nourished by the 'Aÿ Grand cru Füt de Chène' from each vintage since 1990, and the other by the 'Esprit Nature' Henri Giraud. With this, Sébastien Le Golvet - master of time as well as the cellar - introduces amazing energy to a great white wine and opens up a whole new dimension: one in which space and time are suspended, and in which complexity, fruit, and spirituality intertwine with shimmering wreaths of orange blossom shot through with flashes of chalk and bitter minerality.

ABOUT Henri Giraud
France
NV
Fortified Wine
Domaine Henri Giraud has relied on time to develop its Ratafia. Patiently, the fruitiest juices from the best years from 1990 to 2016 were blended with Fine Champenoise and aged in small oak barrels in Solera. This alchemy discovered in the 13th century lets us taste today the caress of these magnificently transcended into soft and smooth Champagne grape juices. Its warm robe, amber with pretty copper reflections, almost red, evokes maturity and elegance.
