Maison Camille Giroud

WHO WE ARE

Maison Camille Giroud ranks among the most venerable as well as the most dynamic of the boutique négociants in Burgundy.  Founded in 1865, Giroud earned an impeccable reputation over the last 150 years as a specialist in traditional vins de garde.  Their principal business model was to acquire wines from the top vineyards and after aging them in seasoned barrels, selling the fully mature wines.

 

In 2001, Giroud was acquired by a group of investment bankers led by wine collector Joe Wender and his wife, Napa cult vintner Ann Colgin. They hired wunderkind David Croix not only to manage the distinguished cellar but also to begin acquiring grapes and making first-class wines.  Croix accomplished this goal with flying colors and has now been succeeded by the highly-talented Carel Voorhuis.

 

Maison Camille Giroud occupies a singular niche in Burgundy: it is at the same time among the most dependable and exciting sources of fully mature, traditional Burgundy, and one of the best sources for transparent, terroir-driven current-vintage Burgundy.
