A Supply Red Burgundy with Soft Tannins

The story of the estate begins in 1865, when a Swiss man by the name of Camille Giroud married the daughter of a Beaune cooper and wine merchant, Miss Deschamps. Camille took over the family business. At this time, Maison Camille Giroud specialized in the purchase of must and finished wine, and the maturation of the latter in the estate's cellars. This tradition continued until the 1990's, when Bernard and Francois Giroud decided to start purchasing grapes from which to produce wine at the family's new production building on Rue Pierre Joigneaud. Finally, in 1993 they purchased their first plot of vines in Beaune, a Premier Cru, and continued to expand the property in the years to come. In 2001, the estate was taken over by Ann Colgin, Joe Wender and a number of other wine-loving investors, who brought the business into an era of renaissance. Contracts with vine growers were renegotiated, a new vat house was built and new equipment was brought into the cellar. In 2007, David Croix was named Manager of Maison Camille Giroud. In 2016, the estate was taken over by Carel Voorhuis.

The Bourgogne Rouge 2016 by Camille Giroud is a 100% Pinot Noir wine made of a blend of grapes grown all throughout the Burgundy region. The estate purchases wines from selected parcels in Cote Chalonnaise, Cote de Beaune and Cote de Nuits.

On the nose, the Bourgogne Rouge 2016 by Camille Giroud is fresh and vibrant, offering plenty of fruit and a great energy. Aromas of ripe red cherries, spice and raw cocoa come through. On the palate, this red Burgundy is quite supple, with soft tanins, an elegant acid structure and a gentle grip on the finish.
