About The Wine
The Camille Giroud Vosne Romanee Les Chalandins comes from a village with a stellar reputation for producing burgundies of wonderful precision.
Coming from a mix of vines with different ages (the oldest being 35 years old), around 45% of the fruit was whole bunch, yet the savoury characters gel marvellously with the red-berry notes, rather than overpowering them. The grapes were ripe but not overripe, resulting in perfumed and juicy characters with some added spice, making a balanced wine with bright acid and fine-grained tannins.
While you can drink it young, it will age very well for at least the next ten years.
About Camille Giroud
Camille Giroud have a long and rich history in Burgundy. Founded in 1865 as a merchant they have ebbed and flowed as Burgundy has evolved - today they produce a diverse and exceptional range of wines made with fruit from both their prided growers and their own vineyards.
Carel Voorhuis is the winemaker today and he continues to impress carrying forward the pure and modern style of his predecessor David Croix. This is a micro-negotiant with centuries of experience whose capacity to continuously evolve and improve is something to be admired, the wines have never been better and represent great value at all levels.
