Established in the 17th century in the heart of the Champagne vineyards, and more precisely in the town of Aÿ, Henri Giraud is an emblematic family house of Champagne. Its history takes root in 1625, when the Hémart family returned to settle in Aÿ and took part in the development of Champagne in the 18th century.
The union of Léon Giraud and Madeleine Hémart marks the beginning of the restoration of the family vines; ravaged during the phylloxera crisis. The house that we know today was founded by their son, Henri.
The Henri Giraud house has a very unique style in its approach, in fact, each cuvée is aged like a wine, generally on whole lees, in oak barrels (from the Argonne forest) or even in terracotta containers. or Sandstone. The house's approach is not very interventionist, it tends to be as natural as possible with the ambition of enhancing the exceptional terroir on which it operates.
