Henri Giraud MV15 Fut de Chene Grand Cru Champagne 75cl 12% ABV
Every year, Henri Giraud's Fut de Chene MV (multi-vintage) from exclusively Grand Cru vineyards is one of the regions most after Champagne. Often likened to Krug, for many the 'Fut de Chene' or the MV is THE Champagne to try, for others, a collectors item. This latest release, the MV15, is based on the 2015 Champagne vintage.
For the vinification of this iconic Champagne, Henri Giraud carefully selects oak barrels made by in-house coopers, using oak from the Argonne forest. The famous oaks of this historic forest have for more than ten centuries raised the great wines of Champagne.
"Composed of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay, with most wines from the 2015 vintage, this is very complex on the nose, with delicate notes of spring flowers joined by elegantly toasted, smoky, woody touches. It's a wine very much marked by the house style but which remains vinous and precise, vertical and dense. A gastronomic Champagne."
