Giraud’s history in Champagne began with the Hémart family, descendants of Henri IV, who settled permanently in Ay at the beginning of the 17th century. In the 20th century, Leon Giraud married a Miss Hémart where he reconstructed the magnificent family vineyard and grafted vines on the cuttings taken from certain American vines.

Over the centuries, the wines of Ay have been classed among the world’s fines and the Giraud-Hémart family own an incredible 35 parcels of Grand Cru land in Aÿ, 26 with Pinot Noir and 9 with Chardonnay. Today Claude Giraud is the 12th generation of the Giraud-Hémart family in Ay and lovingly oversees this family House.

Tasting Notes

94 Points Wine Spectator
Elegant and creamy, this is silky on the palate, yet the refined texture belies the rich and expressive palate of ripe cherry and strawberry pâte de fruit, brioche, Grand Marnier, espresso and exotic ground spice. A rich rosé, framed by finely honed acidity, this is a food wine. Try with duck à l’orange. Drink now through 2028. 350 cases made.
