NV Henri Giraud 'Blanc De Craie'

$119.00

Region: Champagne, FRA

Variety: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay

Farming: Organic

Henri Giraud has been making Champagnes of character and spirit for generations. Located in Ay, the former capital of wine growing in Champagne, and famed for its powerful Pinot Noir fruit, this village is also home to Bollinger, Deutz and Gosset. It is classified as a ‘Grand Cru’, one of only seventeen of the 323 Champagne vineyards to qualify for this classification. This is a unique family run maison and has an individual style and a focus on the use of barrel especially from the Argonne Forest, and more recently, clay amphora and concrete eggs. They are aiming to be the first Champagne house to move away completely from the use of stainless steel and devote their entire production to oak. 

The Blanc de Craie is composed 100% Chardonnay from the Montagne de Reims. 12 months of vinification over full lees in stainless Steel tanks + 10% of reserve wines Chardonnay Aÿ Grand Cru vinified 12 months in Argonne oak barrels, matured 2 years on yeast into the bottle.
