    Camille Giroud, a Swiss wine merchant, marries Miss Deschamps and takes over her family's wine trade firm, which he renames Maison Giroud Deschamps. In 1903, the company becomes known as Camille Giroud and establishes its premises in Beaune. Unlike other wine merchants, Camille only buys musts and finished wines, relying on his talent as a wine maturer to establish the reputation of his company. After Camille's death, his youngest son, Lucien, takes over and maintains the family tradition. In the 1990s, the company faces financial difficulties and Bernard and François Giroud begin to buy grapes instead of purchasing wine. David Croix joins the Maison in 2001, launching new projects and building a new vat house. In 2002, Ann Colgin and other investors take over the company, with David Croix named as Manager in 2007. The Maison remains exclusive and pursues new projects under the leadership of Carel Voorhuis.

    Pommard is a village located between Beaune and Volnay in the Côte de Beaune region of France. It is situated in the middle of the slope, in the heart of its grouping vineyard, which is at an altitude between 240 and 380 meters, facing East/South-East. Pommard is known for its full-bodied and tannic red wines made from Pinot Noir, which have been highlighted since the middle ages. The name Pommard is derived from the ancient goddess Pomone, who was venerated by the first inhabitants of Pommard. In 2004, the village was called Polmareum, which later became Pomareum, derived from the Latin word "pomarium" meaning orchard.

    Camille Giroud Pommard Les Cras 2020 comes from 35-year-old vines located in Pommard, facing East/South-East and at an altitude between 280 and 320 meters. These vines are planted in limestone soil. Camille Giroud Pommard Les Cras 2020 has a fruity and elegant aroma with a beautiful finesse in its power, intensity, grain and complexity. It reveals notes of wild cassis, juicy quetsche plum, wild strawberry, cherry, rose, lily, pepper and cinnamon. The palate is elegant, juicy, fresh and has a racy minerality, tension and a finely tight grain. The wine expresses notes of cherry, cassis, small red berries, lily, rose, blackberry, rosewood and sweet spices. It is a beautiful, full-bodied and dynamic wine with a persistent hint of chocolate. Camille Giroud Pommard Les Cras 2020 is a perfect match for beef, veal, game and poultry dishes.
