The Argonne cuvée is the epitome of Giraud’s expertise and research, created only in exceptional vintages: a true tête de cuvée. 2012 is an extremely fine wine.

“A sort of Montrachet of Champagne!” - Jancis Robinson MW

"Claude makes wonderfully rich caressing wines with classic hazelnut-scented village character." - Richard Juhlin

“some of the most unique, individualistic wines in Champagne… At their best, the Giraud Champagnes offer incredible intensity, class and balance.” - Antonio Galloni

Named for the forest where the house sources the oak for its bespoke barrels – Argonne is the flagship wine of Champagne Henri Giraud. Robert Parker has said that it “resembles the top cuvées from Krug [with] more freshness” – indeed the rich, ripe quality of this champagne is married with stunning clarity and finesse.

The Argonne cuvée is the epitome of Giraud’s expertise and research, created only in exceptional vintages: a true tête de cuvée.

"It's certainly more savoury and lifted than the 2012 – and tighter with more tension. And more life ahead of it with real line and still lots of chewiness. Very racy indeed. Quite hard to believe this is informed by Pinot Noir. But there is a great undertow.” 18 pts, Jancis Robinson

“Tart tartine, brioche, green apple, and hints of ripe fresh herbs. Menthol, too. It’s very direct and powerful with vivid acidity and a dry, racy finish. Tight and compressed with an elegant structure. Linear and very energetic. Turns decadent and flavorful at the end. Shows the cold growing season. Subtle and complex" 97 pts, James Suckling
