The Growers > Maison Camille GiroudCamille-Giroud had a long history as a négociant that released powerful, very long-lived wines. In 2000, it was sold to a group of American investors, and David Croix installed as director, who, to put it simply, is a genius, and made a raft of great wines until his departure in 2016. His successor is Carel Voorhuis, who is crafting similarly pure, seductive and terroir-driven wines.
Carel Voorhuis is very pleased with the open, fresh wines of 2017. They do not have the concentration of 2015 or 2016, but more than make up for it in elegance.
