Les Bressandes is situated very close to Savigny-les-Beaune and is high up on the slope. For this reason there are usually no stems employed, because with the high rock content David—like many vignerons his age—feels that they’d contrast the built in textures already present; in this case, the “strong chalky character” David says that this vineyard consistently imparts to the wine. Bressandes is a pleasure for those who seek out great lines, solid mineral textures, lift and cut.
David Croix quickly made a name for himself as the winemaker for the venerable negociant, Camille Giroud, a position he held from 2002 to 2016. He started at Camille Giroud fresh out of oenology school, at the age of 24, and because of the range of terroirs vinified at Camille Giroud received a one-of-a-kind education on Beaune vineyards.
