Camille Giroud is one of the most dynamic négociants in Burgundy. Giroud founded his small négociant firm back in 1865 and about a century later, the company was still being run by his daughter-in-law and their children. At the time, the aim was to obtain grapes from the best vineyard sites and then age them in heavily seasoned barrels, only releasing them once fully matured; these wines were known for being heavy and tannic.

Then, for over two decades, David Croix transformed Maison Giroud: he elevated the brand by producing more refined, contemporary expressions of Burgundy. Croix focused on lower yields, riper grapes and creating wines with vibrant personality and softer tannins. Since 2016, these high quality, joyous and modern wines have been made by Carel Voorhuis.

Maison Camille Giroud is a true négociant, with only 2.7 acres of its own under vine. It’s become known as a dependable source of Burgundy that delivers the best of both worlds — wines that are matured and traditional in style, as well as younger wines that beautifully communicate their terroir.   

The grapes for this wine are whole-cluster pressed. Indigenous yeasts are used for fermentation. The wine is the racked for 6 months, blended in stainless steel tank and aged for 12 months in old Burgundian barrels. There is a whisper of mineral reduction sitting atop the aromas of green fruit, citrus and lemongrass. This wine has solid volume and density to the middle weight flavors that possess fine depth and persistence on the slightly rustic finale. Lovely for its level and worth checking out.
