Old and revered negociant, Camille Giroud was founded in 1865 and has long been known for releasing big powerful Burgundies with exceptional aging potential. In 2001 the estate was acquired by a group of investment bankers led by wine collector Joe Wender and his wife, renowned American Winemaker Ann Colgin. They hired 24 year old David Croix straight out of Oenology school to manage the distinguished cellar and began to acquire grapes to produce their own collection of great wines. Today David's successor Carel Voorhuis is crafting pure, seductive terroir-driven wines which are extremely aromatic, modern and refined with a wonderful texture.
