Description of Blanc de Craie
The all new cuvée from Maison Henri Giraud : Cuvée Blanc de Craie is a 100% Chardonnay Champagne from the Montagne de Reims, vinified in tanks for 6 months, then in small oak barrels made from the Argonne Forest. Then, this wine spent 3 years in the cellars.
As soon as his name is pronounced, it resonates in us. It tickles simultaneously hearing, touch, sight and inspires emotion. Blanc de Craie is on the borders of the human adventure of wine: the virgin and feeder matrix, the blank page being printed, the rural world of Champagne that man has carved.
Free of clichés, this wine is out of frame. Flowery and generous, their Chardonnays sign a passionate and unique wine route as any producer must be.
