"This exclusively Grand Cru champagne of 100% Pinot Noir from the Aÿ Grand Cru".

- +

The colour is a bright blonde.

The nose discloses notes of yellow flowers, peach, vanilla and white pepper.

To the palate : just what it takes in winery taste combined with a rich range of fruity aromas with a very fine finish in oak wood.

To be served around 8 to 10°C as an aperitif or with various canapés, with fishes like bar with champagne or pike with a white butter sauce, or with baked salmon.

At the Code Noir vintage tasting, unanimity was in order : the bright blonde colour, the nose on gourmet notes of yellow flowers, peaches, vanilla and white pepper, then this charming, dense, invigorating taste, with just the right balance. This vinous style with a tonic effervescence won us over. The Code Noir vintage thus took a leading place in our cellar.

Henri Giraud Champagne, a house managed by Claude Giraud from an old family settled in Aÿ for many generations, on a vineyard mainly located on the mountain of Aÿ.

Aÿ, a prestigious name forever linked to the region’s history, whose wines have been ranked among the world’s best wines for at least 10 centuries. Kings of France always wished to own a vineyard in Aÿ. Henri IV, King of France, even was called “Sir of Aÿ”. Until 1887, wine from the Champagne region were called “wines of Aÿ”, and after this date, they acquired the designation “Champagne”.

Today, 323 Champagne wines can produce Champagne, but only 17 are legally classified “Grands Crus”. Aÿ, classified Grand Cru, is the geographic, qualitative, and historic heart of the Champagne region.

The vine on this mythic land are rooted in a deep calcareous soil, to draw from it extraordinary expressions that are mineral and floral.

The Henri Giraud produces several Champagne qualities, but Premiers Grands Cru only selected a few, truthful to its Charter.
