CHAMPAGNE | FRANCE

The NV Blanc de Craie Brut displays the brightest color of all the cuvées I have tasted from Henri Giraud for this report. The citrus colored Blanc de Blancs assembles Chardonnay from Aÿ (55% fermented and aged on the full lees for 12 months) and the Montagne de Reims (45%, fermented and aged in concrete eggs). The unusual HG style opens with a lovely chalky bouquet of white and yellow-fleshed fruits along with almond, white nougat, lemon and herbal notes. Pure, straight and fresh, this is a vinous, perfectly balanced and salty Champagne à la Giraud at a pretty fair price. Disgorged after two years on the second lees in July 2017. 20.000 bottles made. Tasted April 2018.
