Champagne Direct stock the best selection of Henri Giraud Champagne in the UK.
The Code Noir and Code Noir Rose are unique expressions of Blanc de Noirs Champagne - amazingly complex, displaying not only power but also balance and freshness. The powerful fruit gains additional complexity as a result of cask fermentation and ageing, followed by four years maturation with the yeast lees in the bottle prior to disgorgement.
The Giraud house is one of the few houses that conduct primary fermentations in oak. The overall production is limited to 250,000 bottles a year, making the Giraud Champagne stand apart from the major producers.
Described by leading wine critic Robert Parker as “the finest Champagne house virtually no one has ever heard of”.The reason for this being that until the 1990s their wines were only sold directly to discerning, well-informed private customers in France and Italy.
