Henri Giraud

About Champagne Henri Giraud

A rapidly rising star on the Champagne stage, Henri Giraud is one of the most innovative houses in the region, with their wines built upon their unique approach to Terroir. Their focus is not only on the terroir of the vines but also that of the Argonne forest, from where they source the oak for their barrels. Because of their use of barrel ageing in the winemaking process and the intensity of their wine, they have been consistently likened to Krug. Indeed many have found their top cuveé, the Fût de Chêne compares favourably while coming in at a fraction of the price.

Henri Giraud Argonne Brut Grand Cru 2012 (1x150cl)

James Suckling (99)

This is an extraordinary, hand-crafted Champagne with aromas of strawberries, spice, dried apples, clementines and subtle bread dough. Dried oranges, too. Full-bodied, yet so tight, compact and powerful with a solid core of fruit and a finish that goes on forever. 90% pinot noir and 10% chardonnay, all from the village of Ay and fermented and aged in new wood for 15 months. Then aged in bottle. Superb structure and complexity. One for the cellar.

Henri Giraud Argonne Brut Grand Cru 2013 (1x75cl)

James Suckling (97)

Tart tartine, brioche, green apple, and hints of ripe fresh herbs. Menthol, too. It’s very direct and powerful with vivid acidity and a dry, racy finish. Tight and compressed with an elegant structure. Linear and very energetic. Turns decadent and flavorful at the end. Shows the cold growing season. Subtle and complex. Single-vineyard wine. 90% pinot noir and 10% chardonnay. Drink or hold.

Henri Giraud Argonne Rose 2008 (1x75cl)

Wine Advocate (97+)

Disgorged in February 2020, the 2008 Brut Grand Cru Aÿ Argonne Rosé opens in the glass with inviting aromas of pear, dried orange rind, marmalade, buttered toast, mocha and red berries. Full-bodied, vinous and chiseled, it's even more concentrated and structured than its 2004 counterpart, its satiny and vinous attack segueing into a deep but youthfully tightly wound core, concluding with a long, intensely sapid finish. 800 bottles were produced, making it comparatively abundant by the standards of this tiny cuvée.

Henri Giraud Ay Grand Cru Fut de Chene MV15 Brut NV (3x150cl)

James Suckling (97)

An edgy, lively Champagne with bread dough, dried apples and apricots. Toffee with caramel with a lifted sense. Light oxidation with some nuts and saltiness. Full-bodied and very layered with so much going on. Creme brulee, pie crust and zingy acidity. Minty and lively. Strawberries and oranges coming through. This is 80% pinot noir and 20% chardonnay, all fermented in wood, 60% new. Drink now.

Henri Giraud Ay Grand Cru Fut de Chene MV16 Brut NV (6x75cl)

Vinous (97)

The MV 16 is bright, fresh and airy and yet has the natural richness of Aÿ that Giraud fans have come to expect. Apricot, tangerine oil, nutmeg, cinnamon, chamomile and dried flowers all meld together in a creamy, ample Champagne that hits all the right notes. A Champagne of towering presence, the MV 16 is classy, understated and undeniably alluring. It is also one of the most impressive Champagnes I have ever tasted from Claude Giraud. Even in the early going, the 70% new oak is so well-integrated. This set of new releases is full of highlights, but the MV 16 is especially fine. Don't miss it! Dosage is 6 grams per liter. Disgorged: December 11, 2020.
