Francois Hemart was born in 1625 in Ay and was the founder of the Hemart Champagne house that later, in the 1920s, became Giraud-Hemart, when a Giraud married into the Hemart family who did not have a male descendent. In the 1950s, the house was renamed Henri Giraud, father of the actual owner Claude Giraud. Ever since it stayed Henri Giraud. So in memory of the founder, was created Champagne Francois Hemart. With Francois Hemart, we provide our customers with a piece of history and a wine that comes from the best terroir of the Champagne region.
The power and the fatness of the Ay hill sides offer, in their prime youth, the opportunity to create this beautiful cuvee of conviviality and spirituality. Fermented and aged in stainless steel vats for 6 months, aged in oak for 6 months followed by 2 years of bottle ageing.
