Champagne Henri Giraud, Fût De Chêne, Brut, 2000

1 x 1.500L
into neck
92 / 100 Robert Parker
Lightly toasted almond, hazelnut, and wheat mingle with cidery apple and fresh lemon on the nose and expansive, infectiously juicy palate of Giraud’s 2000 Brut Fut De Chene. Intimations of ocean breeze waft from the glass as well, anticipating a strikingly saline and alkaline streak on the palate that follows mouthwateringly in a long, gripping finish. A seemingly relatively low-pressure impingement of CO2 reinforces the broad and texturally plush aspects of this bottling; the task of preserving vivacity can meantime safely be turned- over to its lively and insistent supply of lemon and tart-edged apple juiciness. Plan to follow bottles for at least half a dozen years. #1113 Nov 2013
93 / 100 Wine Spectator
Exotic curry notes accent flavors of pear financier, coffee liqueur, oyster shell and candied orange zest in this luxuriant, toasty Champagne. Aging gracefully, the vibrant acidity is seamlessy integrated with the rich flavor profile and fine, creamy texture. Drink now through 2022. 2,000 cases made.
16 / 20 Jancis Robinson
With the old-fashioned muzzle. Very big yet savoury (whereas the Code Noir is much richer). Dry finish. I expect it’s too expensive.
