Champagne Henri Giraud
Part of the clear wines of this young brand, launched by Claude Giraud (the Giraud-Hénart family), is made in oak barrels in Argonne, a forest in Champagne. The woodiness marks the range, but has been better controlled in recent vintages, letting the maturity of the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the main origin of the grapes, shine through.
