Product Description:

The company was founded in 1865 by a fellow whose ancestors had emigrated to Switzerland during the Huguenot persecutions. He returned to France and married a Burgundian lady of property. Camille Giroud took up residence at its present address in the late 1890s.

One of the last of the small nego├žiants specializing in "vins de garde", Bourgogne Rouges that need ten to fifteen years to mature.

The eponymous winery was founded in 1865. It was passed down through the generations, first to Camille's son, Lucien, and then to his grandsons, Bernard and Francois. The winery was then bought by Joe Wender and Ann Colgin in 2001. One of the ways they insured the traditional style of the future wines was to hire winemaker David Croix. The grapes are mostly de-stemmed and pressed in a pre-1920's wooden press. David uses no new oak in his village wines and up to 20% in the Grand Cru, preferring to let the fruit and terroir from each appellation speak for itself.
