Tasting Notes

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

    2015 Domaine Jean-Michel Giboulot Hautes-Côtes de Beaune has more dark fruit in it: black cassis and dark Hudson cherry fruit dominates the aromas and flavors. There are also notes of black tea on the palate, mouthfeel is dense and juicy. Everything seems to be in great balance: tannins, acidity and just a hint of oak come together seamlessly.

    This wine has a haunting nose of cassis and violets, with a brooding core of dark berry fruit with richness that comes purely from the ripeness of the 2015 vintage. Just a hint of oak rounds out the finish. YUM!

    A delightful bottle for those looking for a little more richness in their Burgundy while still being a wine from this area. The Hautes-Cotes de Beaune features a clean nose with perfectly ripe raspberry and hints of cherry. There is a lovely amount of fruit in the wine and very soft tannins that coat the palate on the finish. The acid here really is to balance the wine, not to drive it. A soft, easy to like Pinot for those dipping their toes into Burgundy.

    What gets me about this wine is the terrific balance it shows between the ripe, fruit driven 2015 vintage and a “hands off”, classic winemaking approach. Of course this “hands off” approach works best when Mother Nature works in your favor, as it did in 2015. This wine does see 1/3 new oak, which helps to add that lush, round mouth feel that is followed by a lovely freshness.
