Grown on a hill divided between two appellations (Savigny-lès-Beaune Premier Cru and Beaune Premier Cru), this wine enjoys southerly exposure and a sandy gravel soil ideally suited to Pinot Noir cultivation. Once vinified, the result is a particularly silky wine with firm tannins which soften over time. Our advice, then, is to leave it for at least five years in your cellar before serving it with poultry or small game.
David Croix was the winemaker at the famous Camille Giroud house in Beaune for nearly 15 years. In 2011 the business was bought by the American Ann Colgin, a winegrower at the top of the Napa Valley, with a financial backer.

The domain's parcels were concentrated around Beaune, with numerous premiers crus, but also the neighbouring appellations of Corton and Corton-Charlemagne. Although not certified, his wines are close today to the greatest organic names and his microcuvées sell like hot cakes around the world.
