Palate Profile

Described by leading wine critic Robert Parker as "the finest Champagne house virtually no one has ever heard of". 

Dame-Jane symbolizes Champagne Giraud’s link to the earth and the origin of wine. Raising a great rosé Champagne in terracotta is not common. The vibration of the fruit on a crystalline purity. An impression of freshness that is almost tactile. Silky tannins enriched by the slow rotation of the lees. More than 50 sandstone amphora are now dedicated to the vinification and ageing of Dame-Jane.

Critic Awards

An intriguing copper colour provokes interest. A lovely notion of freshly baked rye crumb blended with ripe Red Delicious apple, with a orange zest overtone. On the palate the dryness, the saltiness, the depth are intense. Hints of field mushroom emerge to show Pinot's essential earthiness. Profound and comes with a supremely salty finish.

"Beginning with the striking, pale copper color, this is very unconventional rosé champagne. Wonderful fruit aromas that range from cherry and wild strawberry to persimmon and candied orange with a touch of sushi ginger. Then comes the mouth-filling and well-structured palate that has an amazing grainy-chalky feel to it, unlike anything else in this category. Very long, saline finish. "

The NV Rosé Rose Dame-Jane is light and airy in the glass. Crushed flowers, sweet crushed berries, white pepper and mint are all beautifully lifted. Translucent and gracious, the Dame-Jane is quite a departure for a house that was previously known for rich, opulent Champagnes.

There's a plush creaminess to this rich and balanced rosé, as well as a pleasing juiciness that enlivens the flavors of plumped cherry, grilled nut and tangerine peel, with a tangy hint of fleur de sel. Lingers on the well-cut finish.

Showing very well, unfurling from the glass with complex aromas of red plums, cinnamon, orange zest, warm bran and smoke. On the palate, it's full-bodied, broad and textural, with all the house's signature vinosity, displaying superb depth at the core, ripe but racy acids and beautiful balance despite its muscular, textural style.
