Henri Giraud Fut de Chene MV Ay Grand Cru Brut is a multi vintage champagne made in Ay by Henri Giraud, the oldest Champagne house in France that is still owned by the founding family. The Giraud-Hemart family has been farming grapes since 1625. The Hemart side of the family are descendants of Henri IV settling in Ay at the beginning of the 17th century.

This champagne is a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, the three most important grape varieties in the Champagne appellation. Claude Giraud, the current owner of the house, is an advocate of using oak barrels to age the wine, although nowadays is uncommon in the area. He sources his oak from the Argonne Forest, which used to provide most of the oak for the Champagne region, but today is barely used. Giraud is so passionate about oak barrels, however, that he has GPS positions on individual trees, so that he can match these up once they have been made into barrels, with specific vineyard parcels.

Henri Giraud Fut de Chene MV Ay Grand Cru Brut features aromas of citrus, cream and white fruit, making it an interesting combination with game. We would suggest to bring this wine along if your aim for the evening is to impress someone.
