Antonio Galloni, tasting note published in July 15th 2019

MV 13 Brut Fût de Chêne is one of the most far-fetched wines I have ever tasted at Henri Giraud. Rich and spherical, with a huge textural resonance, the 2013 possesses an intensity off the charts in all directions. White flowers, smoke, crushed rock and citrus incorporate into the intense, palate-tinged finish. The house style imprint is very strong in all these wines, but the 2013 stands out for its explosive vertical lift and vibrancy. Simply put, the 2013 is a new benchmark wine for Henri Giraud. It is a stunning wine that Giraud fans will absolutely not want to miss. Degorgement: 20 March 2018.

Henri Giraud

Cuvée Fût de Chêne MV13 (Multi-Vintage) : 100% Grand Cru de Aÿ, the true expression of the Maison Giraud style, presented in a unique bottle, and sealed with a clamp.
This champagne is made from a blend composed of 67% of the 2013 vintage, and 33% from the perpetual reserve, with 70% Pinots Noirs and 30% Chardonnays.
After 12 months of creation in oak barrels from the Argonne forest, then 6 years on its lees, this cuvée reveals itself and is definitely a remarkable wine !
In addition to the great salinity of the Maison Henri Giraud champagnes, this Fût de Chêne MV13 reveals an extraordinary complexity.
This house ambition was to reveal the balance and elegance of an Aÿ Grand Cru champagne, characterized by a beautiful harmony and a great personality, presented in a superb and free case.
Inside the presentation case, you will discover a unique tool specially created by Maison Henri Giraud in order to uncork its greates cuvées.
