Tasting notes: Big and powerful, it has a delicious aroma of baked apple pie, roasted coffee beans and a hint of hazelnut that draws you in. The palate is more Burgundy than Champagne with its fullness and deep, enticing fruit character of red berries, combine with roasted nuts and baked red apples.
About the winery: The iconic Henri Giraud Champagne is located in Ay, in the Champagne region of France (not to be confused with Maison Paul Giraud, who produces Cognacs!) The Champagne House’s flagship style is a rich, voluptuous Fut de Chene, a Champagne blend dominated by Pinot Noir and aged in an Argonne Oak cask. The wines are a blend of the Pinot Noir grape variety and a small percentage of Chardonnay. Unlike other producers in the Champagne region, Henri Giraud prefers the use of Argonne Oak barrels rather than the popular Bordeaux barrels. (More about this later.)
