Champagne Henri Giraud Esprit de Giraud Blanc de Blanc

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Blanc de Blanc means this little puppy has been made with 100% chardonnay. What this means stylistically is that it's a more pure, almost mineral style that shows lots of crisp green apples, citrus, white florals and breadiness on the nose, whilst the palate is lighter-bodied and fresh with the merest kiss of sweetness upfront, apple-like flavours, a fine bubble and a nice creamy finish. This would be great as an aperitif or with some kingfish sushi.

Winemaker's Notes

A fresh aspect, with a beautiful golden yellow colour, touched by light green highlights. Its fine bubbles dance a lively, joyous ballet.
The foam resembles a crystalline crown.Preserved citrus fruits, fresh hazelnuts and, above all, the fine fragrances of spring flowers – acacia, mock orange and honeysuckle – offer a magnificent bouquet of great restraint and distinction. Then, its character expands, becoming riper and more exotic, revealing pineapple, lychee, roses and almonds, as well as toasted aromas.
A few minutes later, the terroir emerges, mineral hints of limestone and iodine.In the mouth, the initial impact is very fresh, frank and savoury, without a hint of “bite”, and this is accompanied by an uplifting and “crispy” effervescence. The finish is particularly distinct and mineral (limestone). It has great length, leaving a pleasant sensation that is both acidulous and chalky.
