“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

Settled on the three pillars of these great wines: Small yields, small containers and original grape variety: the Fût de Chêne cuvée has left a lasting impression in Champagne since 1990.

Custodian of the Champagne know-how and natural modernity, MV also translates their singular and unique way to express a vintage wine that goes well beyond the image restitution of just one year. As the backbone of their collection, MV is the result of an unprecedented work on traceability and wine-making process in oak casks that encouraged them to understand the forest terroirs as their own vine terroirs.

What the critics say:

97/100Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"The MV 16 is bright, fresh and airy and yet has the natural richness of Aÿ that Giraud fans have come to expect. Apricot, tangerine oil, nutmeg, cinnamon, chamomile and dried flowers all meld together in a creamy, ample Champagne that hits all the right notes. A Champagne of towering presence, the MV 16 is classy, understated and undeniably alluring. It is also one of the most impressive Champagnes I have ever tasted from Claude Giraud. Even in the early going, the 70% new oak is so well-integrated. This set of new releases is full of highlights, but the MV 16 is especially fine. Don"t miss it! Dosage is 6 grams per liter. Disgorged: December 11, 2020. (Originally published in May 2021)"

95/100William Kelley, Wine Advocate

"The NV Brut Grand Cru Aÿ Fût de Chêne MV16 is showing beautifully, offering up a complex bouquet of pear, orange oil, buttered toast, toasted almonds, smoke and honeycomb. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and vinous, with a deep core of fruit, bright girdling acids and a classy pinpoint mousse, it's long and penetrating, with a seamless, elegant profile."
