September 2007 was an important moment in wine-making history. In that year, the first decoding of the genome from the Pinot Black vine occurred, and this led to the creation of the Henri Giraud Code Noir.
Formed in small barrels in the prestigious Argonne forest, the Code Noir is a champagne Blanc de Noirs which has a blonde Champagne dress. Charming guests with its creamy effervescence and lightness, this wine of ripe nose is an expert at marrying finesse and complex beauty together.
Baked pear aromas settle, along with cherry. Soon, the experience takes a happy twist, giving you gourmet notes of yellow flowers, peach, vanilla and white pepper. As if this wasn't enough, a fragrance of honey makes itself present, doing so with delicate spices that add a whole universe of texture.
Once on the palate, a dense and vinous power arrives with charming freshness. The palate then defines the meaning of the phrase beautiful aromas, with a texture that is both soft and chalky.
