Cuvée Blanc de Craie - Henri Giraud

Champagne Blanc de Blancs

 

  • NOTE : 92/100 Wine Spectator
  • TASTING NOTE: "Fragrant, with hints of graphite and spice, this rich champagne offers a fine, jagged mousse, with appetizing acidity animating the profile of poached black cherry, coffee liqueur, brioche and lemon cream. Disgorged in November 2017. Drink now until 2022". A.N.
  • PRESENTATION: BLANC DE CRAIE, the experience of originality". Geniuses are born in suffering", it is said. Clinging to the chalk of the south, in Aÿ, the Chardonnays have genius! By working Chardonnay in the land of Pinot Noir, we are not afraid to mark our difference as it contributes to excellence. Freed from traditional clichés, chalk as a path of humility, so discreet that it is forgotten, so present that it gives strength and life. Blanc de Chie bypasses the classic Blanc de Blancs franchise, posing its originality with typicity and generosity. A champagne for connoisseurs who appreciate its luminosity, invigorating purity and exalted creative inspiration.
  • TERROIR: "Champagne: A poor country that a chalk wine made sumptuous". - Salvador Dali. The chalk of Aÿ, forgotten there seventy million years ago by the Cretaceous seas that covered Champagne, is extremely poor and tender. They reach more than two hundred metres thick in places, just covered with twenty centimetres of fertile earth. At once discreet and dazzling, they outcrop in the vineyard, which is adorned with white wrinkles. It is so easy for Aÿ to find a piece of chalk and appreciate its softness in the palm of his hand. It is white and fine, so soft that it can be easily scratched with a nail. Don't underestimate it despite its apparent fragility because its multiple attractions command respect. Facing due south, it is perfect for the vine, poor in nutrients, it stores heat and water and releases them regularly. It drains and absorbs excess water. Rich in microscopic marine fossils, it offers the vine, in an almost maternal ratio, the best it has to offer and gives the Aÿ wine that special structure and incomparable salinity.
