      Description

      The cuvee Hommage à François Hémart from Henri Giraud is elaborated exclusively from grapes from the Grand Cru terroir of Aÿ, (as noted on the label) and its production is therefore limited to just a few thousand bottles and magnums per year.

      It’s a champagne of pure pleasure and grace made from 70% Pinot Noir and 30 % Chardonnay.

      Unique in Champagne for its winemaking method, it is matured for 6 months in barrels made of oak from the Argonne forest.

      A sublime marriage of the power and opulence of the wines from Aÿ with the maturity gained from a slow respiration in small oak barrels.
