Giroud Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Charmes 2005

Maison Camille Giroud is an old school negociant, albeit a relatively tiny one, situated in Beaune and famous for a cellar full of old vintages which are still offered on occasion. The 2001 vintage, the year a very young David Croix was hired to take over as winemaker, marked the beginning of a sea change at this address. The old traditions of buying finished wines gave way to purchasing fruit to vinify and gain some control of the product and it would have been difficult to find a better candidate for this than the (then) 24 year old David. Giroud was purchased by a group of American investors in 2001 which provided the capital to make drastic and much needed improvements which paved the way for a dramatic increase in quality.
