Champagne Henri Giraud, a House directed by Claude Giraud from an old family settled in Aÿ for several generations on a vineyard located mainly on the mountain of Aÿ.
Aÿ, a prestigious name always mixed with the history of this wine region whose wines for at least ten centuries are classified among the greatest wines of the world. The kings of France have always wanted to own a plot of vines in Aÿ. Henri IV, king of France was even called "Sieur d'Aÿ". Until 1887, the wines from the region of Champagne were called "wines of Aÿ" and it is only at this date that these wines definitively acquired the name "Champagnes".
Today 323 vintages of Champagne have the right to produce Champagne but only 17 are legally classified as "Grands Crus."
Aÿ, classified as Grand Cru, is the geographical, qualitative and historical heart of Champagne.
The vines of this mythical terroir plunge their roots into the intimacy of the deep veins of its limestone to draw its Extraordinary expressions that are so mineral and flowery.
The House of Henri Giraud produces several qualities of Champagne, but Premiers Grands Cru has retained only a few of them, faithful to its charter.
