David Croix – on the move…

DSC08818There’s no doubt that David Croix has been very busy at two Beaune producers for the last years; working at, and then overseeing, Maison Camille Giroud since 2001 and his own Domaine des Croix (with investors), since 2005. But at the end of this year he will be making some big changes:

“I’m proud of what we have achieved at Camille Giroud, and 15 years has gone by really quickly, but I’ve decided that it’s time for a change. It’s really possible that a fresh pair of eyes and hands can take Camille Giroud to a new level – which I’m really hoping for. So the 2016 harvest will be my last for Camille Giroud as I will be moving to a new project at the end of the year. Whilst Domaine des Croix is my priority, it won’t be my only project – you can imagine that I wouldn’t want to be bored (he jokes) – after-all, at the moment I have over 40 different cuvées at these two domaines – I’d be moving to ‘only 11’ at Domaine des Croix!”

Given that it’s 6 months away David prefers, for the moment, not to be drawn on his new project:

“It’s just not the right time, I have clear priorities at Camille Giroud and des Croix right now. But I can confirm that we will be announcing my replacement at Giroud very soon.”
