The Cuvée Blanc de Craie of the Maison Henri Giraud is an exceptional cuvée from the best terroirs of the Montagne de Reims. Made only from Chardonnay, it sublimates this grape variety by giving it a new facet, a true alliance between the fatness of the fruit and the minerality of the chalk.
The color is a delicate golden yellow, with light green reflections that are pierced by the fine strings of foam.
The first nose is very marked by the fruit. Notes of citrus fruits, very fresh and pleasant, give way, in a second time, to aromas of exotic fruits (pineapple, lychee..) more fruity.
The mouth, very greedy, offers a frank and tonic attack thanks to a beautiful minerality.
Aÿ Grand cru
Montagne de Reims
A terroir rich in chalky soil, a great minerality. The sun exposure is light, rather at the end of the day.
This terroir is excellent for wines of this blend, strong in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
A domain committed from the very beginning to making Champagne "The Great Wine of Champagne" again, each of our vintages explores a new aesthetic and delivers a strong message.
Connected to the dreams of perfection and the freedom of innovation, we naturally create great wines that concentrate and transpose the energy of our Aÿ Grand Cru terroir.
Without stainless steel and with the minimum of intervention and suffering, our creative and natural vinification leads our wines closer to the truth of the terroir and the grape varieties.
