Henri Giraud is a prestigious name known for producing rich, extensive and powerful wine. Founded way back in 1625, Henri Giraud is one of the oldest Champagne houses in the region and is still a family-run business which is currently owned by twelfth generation Claude Giraud, with his son managing the company while son-in-law being the head winemaker.
Their wines are 100% oak-fermented and the house insists on producing with oak casks from the forest in Aÿ to impose the forest terroir into the wine, giving it one of the most unique flavors among Champagnes in the world. Their star production is "Argonne" which was first released in 2002 after years of research. The Argonne cuvée is produced with 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay, all from the best vineyards in Aÿ (100% Grand Crus), and then exclusively vinified in new casks made from Argonne wood then ages 7 more years in the bottle on its yeasts.
Today we are pleased to offer their 2011 vintage of the Argonne cuvée, awarded 94pts by Antonio Galloni who praised the Champagne to be "powerful and explosive in the glass" with none of the green notes that afflicted many Champagnes in this challenging vintage of 2011 -

94pts Antonio Galloni
The 2011 Argonne is one of the most impressive wines of this challenging vintage. Ample and creamy, as all the Giraud wines are, the 2011 offers plenty of depth and resonance. Lemon confit, mint, sage, white pepper, ash, crushed rocks and white flowers give the 2011 striking freshness that provides an attractive counterpoint to a core of rich, resonant fruit. The 2011 is powerful and explosive in the glass, with none of the green notes that afflict so many 2011s.
All subject to final confirmation. Available in 3-4 weeks. Special offer valid until 31st July 2020 (Fri).
