Description

History

We have news of the presence of the Hémart family in Ay since 1625; the company began its real development phase in 1900 with the marriage of Madeleine Hémart and Léon Giraud. Precisely to the latter we owe the intuition of the great quality of the land owned and then replant the vineyards destroyed by phylloxera. Today the maison is one of the most established maisons in Ay and Champagne and is led by the twelfth generation represented by Claude Giraud, an oenologist with studies in Burgundy. The characteristic of the champagnes of this maison is the relationship with the territory linked to the use of oak barrels entirely coming from the nearby forest of Argonne since 1990. From 2016 the company has decided to abandon the vinification in steel, the cuvèe will be vinified only in wood or in amphorae, furthermore pesticides are no longer used since that date. A real “Revolution Nature”.

Grapes used

Pinot Noir 70%

Chardonnay 30%

Production method

It is produced according to the so-called champenoise method or classic method, a method in which the wine substantially undergoes two different fermentations: the first, the alcoholic one (which it shares with the rest of the wines) takes place in vats for fermentation; the second instead takes place directly in the bottle and ensures that during this second procedure, thanks to particular yeasts, the wine also develops carbon dioxide (which will then give life to the famous bubbles when uncorked).

Alcohol content

12%

Tasting notes

Straw yellow color with golden reflections. The nose is intense with notes of brioches, white flowers, peach and orange mixed with mineral notes. On the palate it is balanced, elegant, important acidity with a long and enveloping finish.

Possible combinations

Excellent with savory fish dishes, shellfish, foie gras and white meats.
