"From old vines, with a north-south orientation which is good in these hotter years. Medium dense bright purple. I like the balanced vigour of the bouquet, on the cherry/raspberry cusp. The power continues on the palate but the red fruit retains a freshness and the whole seems better balanced to me than the Volnays. Fruit/tannin/acid balance shows all at the correct levels of ripeness, and the length is impressive for a village wine."

ABOUT CAMILLE GIROUD

Established in 1865, Maison Camille Giroud has a rich heritage rooted in Burgundy’s winemaking tradition. Initially a specialist négociant, they sourced wines from esteemed growers across the renowned Côte d’Or region, ageing them meticulously in their cellars for decades to achieve peak maturity. In 2001, a consortium, including Napa Valley winery owner Ann Colgin and wine investors, took over, aiming to blend tradition with modern techniques and a terroir-driven approach. This led to innovations, like wooden presses and open vats, under the dynamic winemaker David Croix.

Most wines continued to be crafted from carefully selected grapes, many from old vines. Their commitment to natural winemaking practices, including native yeast fermentation and minimal intervention, set them apart. In 2016, Carel Voorhuis continued the legacy of crafting pure, terroir-driven wines, maintaining Maison Camille Giroud’s reputation for excellence in Burgundy.
