A multi-vintage assemblage consisting of 70-30 Pinot-Chardonnay, Giraud’s NV Brut Fut De Chene Disg. 3/2012 exhibits resinous – almost coniferous – overtones that point toward wood, in this case new oak from the Argonne. (So it appears from my recent experience that sometimes the flavor of these barrels gets entirely out of the way, and sometimes it asserts itself.) But these wood-borne elements nicely segue into intimations of ocean spray, as well as white peach, grapefruit and lemon that form the luscious basis for this bottling’s sappy, substantial yet vivacious palate. In its gripping and almost blatantly intense finish, too, this wine’s faintly resinous, woody edge manages to dovetail into bittersweet citrus oils, ripe peach, and mouthwatering salinit

Elegant overall, with a refined, creamy texture and beautiful integration. This rich Champagne displays power and focus, with expansive flavors of baked currant, plum, bread dough, crystallized honey, ground clove, grated coconut and ginger on the long-lasting finish.
