"Thought-provoking and sensual Blanc de Blancs with aromas of chalk, lemon pith, blanched almonds and sourdough, as well as pine nuts and sea salt. Starts tight, then opens up with a vinous and creamy, yet sharp and bright palate with focused bubbles. Exciting spicy hints on the finish. 60% perpetual reserve from 1990. Drink or hold."

"Blanc de Craie is a new cuvée from Henri Giraud, 100% Chardonnay from 55% Aÿ and 45% Louvois fruit. With scents of lemon, a little verbena and honeysuckle, the nose is lively and pleasant, while the texture is perfectly defined, displaying well-controlled acidity and perfect balance. Can be aged for up to five years."
