The new cuvée from the Champagne house Henri Giraud Hommage au Pinot Noir gives these letters of nobility back to the famous Champagne grape. You can see the wine has texture, it’s rich.

The origins of Champagne Henri Giraud go back to 1625. Claude Giraud, 12th generation of the Giraud-Hémart family, today presides over the destiny of this Champagne House. Claude Giraud has returned since 1990 to history and rebuilt the first oak barrels from the Argonne Forest.

The famous oaks of this historic forest have for more than ten centuries raised the great wines of Champagne. "Argonne" is today the name of the house's iconic cuvee. Each year, Sebastien Le Golvet, the Cellar Master of the house, mobilizes his merrandiers and coopers. Together, they select the most beautiful oaks of the Argonne forest. This delicate work will be the last precious touch of the grand cuvees. With its unique expertise in the vinification of great Champagne cuvees in new oak barrels, the Henri Giraud House is now working on new winemaking in small containers, either of terracotta or ovoid sandstone to optimize the exchange between the wine and its lees.

The saltiness, intensity and aromatic complexity of Champagne Henri Giraud make it one of the jewels of Excellence in this region. With only 250,000 bottles of which only a few thousand bottles for its grande cuvees, these champagnes are sought-after by collectors and lovers of great wines from around the world. "The Henri Giraud Experience" is the commitment to return to the excellence of the great wines of Champagne. A great terroir, Aÿ Grand Cru, historical and qualitative cradle of Champagne.

A great grape variety, Pinot Noir, reference grape of Champagne. A great forest, Argonne, home-made cradle of Champagne. “Let nothing be banned and nothing be obligatory – just make good wine naturally” - Henri Giraud
