HENRI GIRAUD BRUT CODE NOIR

CHAMPAGNE GUIDE 2 STARS - "Although not stated on the label, this is entirely from the 2006 harvest, and as usual, itís 100-percent Pinot Noir from Aˇ, vinified in new Argonne oak barrels. I find this to be a notable improvement over previous releases in the way that it balances its wood, as it shows much more finesse and harmony. While it demonstrates a velvety, stylized richness, it combines its opulent girth with an impressive detail and clarity of flavor, feeling sculpted and refined. Last tasted: 7/10."

Claude Giraud makes some of the most vinous, individualistic wines in Champagne and the house enjoys an avid following in Europe. His ďCode NoirĒ is our favorite bottling and stands as the best example of the masculine Giraud style. Itís 100% Pinot Noir from the Grand Cru village of Aˇ and was vinified in new Argonne forest barrels. This Champagne impresses with the way the oak is seamlessly fused with the wineís deep-seated red fruit and mineral flavors. An exciting, grand Champagne all on its own, but one that would be out of this world when paired with a Christmas goose or other savory holiday fare.
