At Maison Camille Giroud, a diversity of terroir allows for delicious variety. From perfumed, plush reds to perfumed whites; their precise wines are made from plots all across the famed Côte d’Or – what unites each parcel is a signature precision and character. 

Gui Crescent Fagon was the Sun King’s doctor. In fact, to cure his royal patient of gout, he recommended that Louis XIV drink only red wine from Vieux Nuits. The king’s health improved and the renown of Nuits-Saint-Georges continued to flourish. Nuits comes from Nuis, which appears to be a surname. The name Saint-Georges comes from the IVth century, when it is reported that Philibert de Mollans brought back to Nuits the relics of Georges de Lydda, a Christian martyr. Saint Georges became a patron saint of Burgundy. The name Les Cailles refers to the rocky soils and the limestone quarries.

From 50 year old vines from the Premier Cru Les Cailles vineyard on east/south-east facing slopes, south of the village of Nuits-St-Georges. Rocky soils and limestone dominate the 3 hectares of the climat. Generous wine with good depth and energy, black fruit flavours making their presence known, balanced by the soft, ripe tannins and subtle oak. Will develop further over the next decade.
