Characteristics of Henri Giraud Champagnes
From the outset, the estate has been committed to ensuring that Champagne becomes "The Great Wine of Champagne" once again. Each of our vintages explores a new aestheticism and delivers a strong message that goes far beyond the simple repetition of ancestral gestures of the winegrower/craftsman fading behind Mother Nature; and is totally opposed to industrial simplification stripping these gestures of their substantial marrow in favour of mass production. Connected to dreams of perfection and freedom of innovation, we naturally create great wines that concentrate and transpose the energy of our terroir of Aÿ Grand Cru. Listening to the lessons of history without fear of revolutions, Pinots Noirs and Chardonnay reveal themselves only at the heart of noble materials: Argonne oak barrels, terracotta or sandstone. Without stainless steel and with a minimum of intervention and sulphur, our creative and natural vinification brings our wines as close as possible to the truth of the terroir and the grape varieties. The Spirit of our house is indefinable, carried by each of our vintages.
History of the House of Henri Giraud
Founded in 1625, Champagne Henri Giraud is unique. The owner of the 12th generation, Claude Giraud, is always eager to find new ways to refine quality and deepen his commitment to the environment. He starts with the family estate in the Aÿ Grand Cru, the rarest and most appreciated of the region, and combines his best wines with barrels from carefully selected terroirs located by GPS in the Argonne forest in Champagne. Even the entry-level wines are vinified and aged in all-natural materials: the cellar has converted all its neutral containers from stainless steel to terracotta.
