Camille Giroud Bourgogne Rouge 2018

ORIGIN
Pinot Noir originates from the first wild vines selected by mankind. It was probably cultivated in Gaul before the Roman invasion. Its presence is recorded in Burgundy during the 4th century after Jesus Christ. “Pinot Vermeil” is mentioned in the region’s hospital register dating back to 1375. It is the only grape variety, maintaining the same name for so many centuries. More of a homebody than a traveller, it symbolizes the almost mythical relationship between a grape variety and its terroir. Original and capricious, it is sensitive to the slightest variations in terms of soil. Contrary to other varieties, that have adapted to other locations, Pinot Noir remains loyal to Burgundy, its region of origin. It provides an extraordinary variety of expressions as it is present within all of the Jurassic zones – marls from the Lias era in Maranges, marly-limestone soils in Pommard and Volnay, crinoidal limestone in GevreyChambertin or limestone in Premeux. Thanks to their selection of the best vines, generations of growers have made Burgundy a unique vineyard by perfectly matching the grape variety, with the terroirs and climates.

THE TERROIR OF OUR WINE
Regional Appellations are wines that can be made out of a blend of several locations, recognized within the appellation area. Wine merchantmaturer is a special profession, involving the careful selection of the best parcels for winemaking, according to the vintage. When it comes to our Bourgogne Rouge, we have selected parcels in Côte Chalonnaise, just next to Givry, in Côte de Beaune, near Volnay and in Côte de Nuits, close to Premeaux Prissey.

‘A ripe and reasonably fresh nose combines notes of plum and various red berries that are laced with discreet earth nuances. The sleek, vibrant and delicious flavors exude a lovely salinity on the mildly tangy and warm finish that offers unusually good depth and persistence. This is a relatively powerful wine for its level and despite a nit or two, it’s really quite good.’ – 87 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound.
