VinoUS Media Review
Rated 93
The NV Hommage au Pinot Noir is another fabulous wine in this range from Giraud. Rich, ample and creamy, the Hommage is so expressive today. The Hommage is 100% Pinot Noir done in an unusual style that sees eleven months in oak followed by six months in tank, an approach that is much more common for white Burgundy. In fact, I have never seen this élevage in Champagne. No matter, though, it all works. Red plum, kirsch, mint, chamomile and spice all meld together effortlessly. The Hommage is rich and generous, but is also light on its feet. This release is based on 2016, with 40% reserve wines. Dosage is 6 grams per liter. Disgorged: September 21, 2020. Drink now-2031.

Wine Tasting Notes
You can see the wine has texture, it's rich. We smell complexity, very fruity: apricot, Mirabelle plum and warm pear. The freshness with the anise and menthol. The palate reveals apricot, Mirabelle plum, Pinot Noir maturity, salinity.
