"The NV Rosé Dame Jane, based on 2013, is powerful, rich and savory. Small red fruits, sage, mint and rose petal add character to this persistent, beautifully nuanced Rosé from Henri Giraud. The 40% reserve wines work well to give added layers of depth and resonance to a blend of 80% Pinot Noir (including 6% still red Pinot) and 20% Chardonnay. Disgorged: November 3, 2017."

"The latest release of Giraud's NV Brut Rosé Dame-Jane is showing very well, unfurling from the glass with complex aromas of red plums, cinnamon, orange zest, warm bran and smoke. On the palate, it's full-bodied, broad and textural, with all the house's signature vinosity, displaying superb depth at the core, ripe but racy acids and beautiful balance despite its muscular, textural style, concluding with a sapid finish. This is another success."

"A toasty rosé Champagne, with a lively bead and mouthwatering acidity providing a fine, balanced frame for the well-spiced flavors of white raspberry, cherry, candied kumquat and brioche. Drink now. 1,500 cases made, 100 cases imported. — AN"

"This is one of the less-ambitious wines from Henri Giraud, a producer committed to oak aging its base wines with specially sourced barrels. The blend includes eight percent red wine, which drives the color as well as the pink grapefruit flavor, its zesty acidity buzzing up against scents of oak. Clean and lasting, this is a wine to decant and serve as you would a light red Burgundy, with roast beef or duck."
Champagne Henri Giraud is one of a kind. With a long list of innovations already under his belt, twelfth-generation owner Claude Giraud is always hungry to find new ways to hone quality and deepen his commitment to the environment. He starts with the family’s property in the grand cru Aÿ, the region’s rarest and most highly valued cru, and pairs his top wines with barrels sourced and individually traced from carefully chosen, GPS-located terroirs in Champagne’s Argonne Forest. Claude conceived this avant-garde program, which includes a philanthropic commitment to replanting the oak forest, in order to return to the land and the comprehensively regional origins of wine. Even the entry-level wines are vinified and aged in entirely natural materials: the winery has converted all of its neutral containers from stainless steel (which, Claude observed, exhausted the wines) to terra cotta. - Distributor
