PRODUCER: When visionary and strong-willed Claude Giraud took the reins from his father Henri in 1983, he decided to bring the family business to a new level. By looking at the past of the champagne business and leveraging on it to redefine its future, it has created a Maison with a very strong identity, based on the terrior of Aÿ grand cru where they are based, the Pinot Noir grape, and the unapologetic intense use of wooden barrel from the Argonne forest, something unique in Champagne today.
WINEMAKING: 80% Pinot Noir / 20% Chardonnay. 50% reserve wines matured in small casks made of oak from the Argonne Forest, 50% sandstone egg-shaped tanks. 20% Aÿ Grand Cru vinified 12 months in Argonne Oak barrels. 12 months of vinifications over full lees. 18/24 months on the lees.
TASTING NOTES: Fragrant with brioche and apple blossom notes, this vibrant Champagne is well-cut, showing a finely detailed bead and layering a spicy thread through flavors of baked apple, candied mandarin orange peel and grated ginger.
