Champagne Henri Giraud

Champagne Henri Giraud was first and foremost a family of growers who have tended to vines in Äy since 1625, making it one of the oldest and smallest family-run houses. However, radical change came in the capable hands of 12th generation CEO, Claude Giraud, who decided to release a wine for the first time under the family name and the rest, as they say, is history! The house style is based upon tradition; fermenting and ageing in Argonne oak barrels (the local forest which Claude stresses adds to the `terroir` of their wines), giving them luxurious and full-bodied characters. Production is limited (ca. 250,000 bottles per year), which is small for a Champagne house and therefore demand is extremely high. Robert Parker Jr once said that Henri Giraud is `the greatest Champagne house you`ve never heard of`...

Champagne

What is it about Champagne? The first choice for celebrations of love, success and life's rites of passage for generations, the exclusive sparkling wines from the Champagne region of France hold a special place in the world of wine. The most northerly of France's wine regions, Champagne's history of sparkling wines dates back to 1668 when Dom Perignon, a local monk, is said to have created the method still used to produce Champagne today. The chalky soils of Champagne are home to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, all employed in a typical Champagne blend. The northerly location of the vineyards means that ripening can be a problem, so using a blend of grapes is critical. Most typically made in a brut, or dry style, non-vintage (NV) Champagne is a blend of wines from a number of years. Vintage champagnes, made only in the best years, are aged extensively before release, creating richer, biscuity flavours.

Chardonnay

Produced in wine regions across the world, Chardonnay is a white wine producing grape, and is made in many different styles. From the lean, crisp wines of Chablis, to the exceptional dry Blancs de Blancs of Champagne and the buttery, rich, oaky wines of the warmer regions of California, Chardonnay wines exhibit a full spectrum of flavours and styles. As a fairly neutral grape, it is the land, soil, location, climate and winemaker that have the biggest impact on this famous grape.
