The MV 13 Brut Fût de Chêne is one of the most riveting wines I have ever tasted at Henri Giraud. Rich and spherical, with tremendous textural resonance, the 2013 possesses off the charts intensity in every direction. White flowers, smoke, crushed rocks and citrus build into the intense, palate-staining finish. The imprint of the house style is very strong in all of these wines, but the 2013 stands out for its explosive vertical lift and vibrancy. Simply put, the 2013 is a new benchmark wine for Henri Giraud. It is a flat-out stunning wine that Giraud fans will absolutely not want to miss. Disgorged: March 20, 2018.
