Henri Giraud is a prestigious name known for producing rich, extensive and powerful wine. 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 all Champagnes. One of their most notable creations is their premium “multi-vintage” cuvee called "Fût de Chêne" which is a blend of around 70-75% Pinot Noir and 25-30% Chardonnay, with the grapes coming only from the best Grand Cru sites, and aged in oak casks for a minimum of 12 months before peacefully lying down for another 72 months until they achieve the best integration of fruits and oak.
We are pleased to offer their Fût de Chêne MV15 today at special price of HK$950 per bottle as well as other formats that we have immediately available from stock. The Aÿ Grand Brut is 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay, based on the 2015 vintage with 30% reserve wines, vinified and aged in oak, 60% new. It spent about eleven months in oak before being racked to tank and then bottled just prior to the 2016 harvest. Dosage is 6 grams per liter. Awarded with 94pts from Antonio Galloni who praised this to be "stellar", don't miss this opportunity to grab a bottle at the special price, or a bottle of the larger formats as these are not often found available! -
