Henri Giraud Esprit de Giraud

Cuvee: Brut Non-Vintage
Vintage: Multi-Vintage
A wine of character, full of mischief and spirit. Gushing, generous and unselfconscious, it has a seductive personality.

The Blend
70% Pinot Noir 30% Chardonnay. Temperature regulated fermentation in stainless steel vats for a year without racking, over the full lees.

Tasting Notes
A fine golden colour with the blonde highlights typical of Pinot Noir wines that have reached maturity.

Touches of peach and pair, vanilla and spices (white pepper) against a background of lemon preserve, which gives it a certain freshness. Then comes its maturity and heartiness...

The initial crispness quickly gives way as the overall wine flavour opens out. Its body, consistence and even fullness give the wine its structure. The mineral notes and light tannis contribute to a long, winey, and warm finish with a silky harshness over aromas of bitter almonds and biscuit.

Food Pairing
Drink with friends for pleasure and discovery in a simple and friendly approach for a festive occasion or simply to relax, or serve in a gastronomic setting with rich starters, veal liver, juicy white meat or hard cheese.
