Champagne Brut Cuvée "Fut de Chene" Grand Crü MV13 - Henri Giraud
The heart of the MV13 cuvée is based at 70% on the 2013 vintage fermented and born for 12 months in wooden barrels of the Argonne forest, to which is added a 30% reserve wine aged with solera method. After foaming, it rests in the bottle for at least 6 years before disgorging.
Located in AY, a Grand Cru village in the heart of the Vallée de la Marne, Henri Giraud is a family-owned boutique with nearly four hundred years of experience behind it. The Maison is dedicated to the production of champagne of absolute quality, combining research and tradition. They were the first to reintroduce the wooden barrels of the Argonne forest, a historic source of quality in the production of Champagne. Since 2016, Henri Giraud has stopped vinifying his steel wines and uses only terracotta amphorae and wooden barrels from the Argonne forest.
