History & Geography
The origins of Champagne Henri Giraud go back to 1625. Contemporary of Henri IV and his descendants, the Hémart family settled permanently in Aÿ at the beginning of the 17th century. Its history rooted in Aÿ, terroir of exception, and intimately mixed with the extraordinary epic of champagne from the 18th century. At the beginning of the 20th century, Léon Giraud, cuirassier of the Marne Battle, married a young lady Hémart. He rebuilt the magnificent vineyard of the family that had just been devastated by phylloxera and First World War. Claude Giraud, 12th generation of the Giraud-Hémart family, today presides over the destiny of this Champagne House. Claude Giraud has returned since 1990 to history and rebuilt the first oak barrels from the Argonne Forest. The famous oaks of this historic forest have for more than ten centuries raised the great wines of Champagne. "Argonne" is today the name of the house's iconic cuvee.
