FINE+RARE, Jun 2024

Henri Giraud’s MV19 is so approachable, stylistically reminiscent of the MV15 or MV10, with rich and generous aromas that jump out of the glass. The usual blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay, with two thirds coming from 2019 vintage and a third from their perpetual reserve (dating back to 1990), vinified and aged in small Argonne oak barrels (50% new) for a year prior to secondary fermentation. The wine offers vivid apricot fruit and a lovely creaminess on the nose that carries through to the palate, broadening out to reveal notes ranging from delicate blossom and citrus oil to honeycomb and toasted brioche. The texture is fantastic, with the House’s signature vinous character and mouth-coating feel. It retains beautiful balance with sapidity and acidity lifting the long finish. This is yet another step up in precision and quality for this cuvée, one of the best MV bottlings to date – one that would be dangerous to serve blind against any Grande Marque’s prestige cuvée.
