Tasting Notes

Jean-Michel is the third Giboulot to head the family estate in Savigny-lès-Beaune, having resided over the 12 hectares in Beaune, Pommard, and Savigny since 1982. Recently making the conversion over to organic farming, the wines have become fresher and rounder thanks to more destemming as well. The 2015 vintage might be the best we've tasted yet from the portfolio, one that we've been working with directly now for a number of years.

    I've tasted this Pinot Noir several times over the past 6 months and while the notes of tart cherry, allspice and earth remain consistent,​​ my nose seems to find something intriguing and wants to linger in the glass much longer every time. You can absolutely drink this now but I recommend you decant it. With a bit of patience and breathing room it reveals its gorgeous layers and complexity. Do yourself a favor and grab a few to put in your cellar for a few years too.

    One of the best value red Burgundies in store. Aromas of dried red fruits and earth. On the palate, cranberry and strawberry flavors, along with rocky mineral notes. There is a pleasant zippy acidity to the wine, making it very food friendly. Can be enjoyed on its own or with various culinary offerings like salmon or roast chicken

    This is a reasonably priced Burgundy that is classic and reflects the vintage. It has the nice expressive fruit that is typical of this vintage. But it is not all about the fruit because that wine is balanced and layered with complex flavors. Dry and delicious, it is nice alone but will be better with food.

    If you like delicate, lighter-style red Burgundy that's aromatically oriented, this is a wine you must try. Despite the warmer vintage, this Burgundy has retained its elegance and light-bodied poise. This is a more classic expression of the region, combining crunchy cranberry and sweet baking spice with soft, fine tannin. This will easily be a favorite of mine once the warmer weather hits, and is perfect now with lighter dishes or all on its own.

    The wines of Savigny-lès-Beaune are some of the most affordable in all of Burgundy, as well as open-knit, charming, and accessible. They are the perfect choice for anyone just beginning to explore the region. This wonderful villages bottling from Domaine Jean-Michel Giboulot is an excellent example. As vintages go, 2015 is among the best, and the quality really shines through here. Notes of clove and cinnamon spice on the nose, along with a hint of violets. On the palate, a mix of red and black fruits, cherry and raspberry. There is ample ripeness here with good concentration, lively acidity and fine tannins. A superb effort, and a terrific value. Drink now, or over the next one to three years.

    2015 Domaine Jean-Michel Giboulot Savigny-lès-Beaune is full of ripe bing cherry aromas. The palate is richly textured and layered with spice, dark cherry and plum, firm tannins and bright acidity. It shows ripeness of the vintage, yet stays restrained and well structured

    The standard Savigny les Beaune from Giboulot is the most traditional of the 2015 bunch, with grittier tannins and more meaty flavors of earth and licorice. The ripeness of the vintage is still there, but it's much more restrained which allows the secondary flavors to shine through. Great for a simple dinner or roasted chicken.

    Looking for the perfect reed Burgundy for under $30? You can stop the search because the 2015 Giboulot Savigny-les-Beaune is the new you've been looking for. Fantastic cherry fruit mingles with subtle spice and oak notes with dusty tannins and bright acidity. Giboulot is a name to look for when drinking your way thru Savigny-les-Beaune.
    Top Value! Drink from 2017 to 2025

    The Giboulot wines are really showcasing the warmth and ripeness of the 2015 vintage in Burgundy. This Savigny-les--Beaune opens immediately with ripe wild cherry, sweet raspberry, and notes of darker berry with just a little earth. The body moves along with balancing acid, rich lovely red fruit and a grippy finish.

    This is one of the darker, juicier Savigny Les Beaunes I have had the pleasure of tasting. Lots of black currants, plums and blueberry flavors with a hint of mocha fill the mouth and linger on the finish. Quite delicious!
