David Croix


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.

David Croix’s dream is to make people understand the great value of Beaune, which, despite being Burgundy’s center of winemaking, has generally fallen short in terms of the appeal of its own wines. He’s making an excellent case with parcels like the premier crus Pertuisots and Savigny’s Les Peuillets.

In 2005, David and a group of private investors bought Domaine Duchet and started Domaine des Croix. Domaine Duchet’s holdings were focused around Beaune along with an interesting parcel of Corton-Charlemagne and Corton, so David’s experience at Camille Giroud came in really hand. His mission since has been to dedicate himself to showing off the character of these Beaune terroirs, which for too long have been under appreciated.
