Henri Giraud Code Noir

Cuvee: Blanc de Noirs
Vintage: Multi-Vintage
The Code Noir evokes ehe elusive spicy softness of a summer’s night. Champagne has a code firmly rooted in its history: “black as Pinot”. The trace of its roots is on the white page of the slopes of the Coteaux.

The Blend
100% Grands Pinot Noirs raised in oak from the Forest of Argonne - Champagne’s historic forest.

Tasting Notes
A luminous and delicate blonde colour, crowned with creamy foam.

A mature and fine nose of beautiful complexity, with cooked pear and cherries, opening out gourmet notes of yellow flowers, peaches, vanilla and white pepper and then warming to finely spiced perfumes of honey, hinting at a glowing future.

This is dense, warm and winey, very well balanced, with lively effervescence and beautiful freshness, The tender texture and mellow tannins, added to the crisp, chalky impression of the finish are typical of how it was raised and enliven a beautiful array of aromas.

Food Pairing
Cuveé Code Noir is a brilliant and nuanced romantic, asserting its personality and always ready to seduce. Served at 8°C, it is a refreshing aperitif, while at 12°C it will enhance quality poultry, veal or fish in cream sauce.
