Tasting Notes

Jean-Michel is the third Giboulot to head the family estate in Savigny-les-Beaune, having resided over the twelve 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 yet tasted from the portfolio, one that we've been working with directly now for a number of years.

    2015 Domaine Jean-Michel Giboulot Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru "Aux Gravains" is bursting with aromas of strawberry and raspberry preserves. Silky and smooth it glides on your palate. Fresh cherry, earthy notes and pronounced minerality creates incredibly complex flavor profile. Wine keeps changing over the time in a decanter and opens up with more nuances: baking spice, floral notes and hints of cinnamon.

    Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner! One whiff of this wine, one little sip as well, is all it will take for you to get back in your car, drive over to K&L, and buy a solid case of this wine. This is one of the most exciting mid-range red Burgundies to hit our store in years. The nose is a flurry of baking spices and ripe black cherry, while the palate carries those flavors further with a lushness and silkiness that you only get in riper years like 2015. Load up. Back up the truck. Do whatever you need to do to find a few extra bucks.

    If you need proof as to why many Burgundy fanatics are looking at Savigny-les-Beaune as the new center of Burgundy values then all you need to do is try the 2015 Giboulot Savigny-les-Beaune 1er cru "Aux Gravains". Loaded with cherry, cinnamon and floral aromas the palate is packed with bright cherry, hibiscus and spice notes. Great length, fine tannins and zippy acidity round out this stellar offering.
    Top Value! Drink from 2017 to 2030

    Here's a totally beautiful expression with aromas of violet and spice. The mid-palate is ripe with generous black cherry fruit showing a gravelly layer of minerality with fleshy body and chewy tannins. There's nice volume, power and balance here proving that Premier Crus can still be affordable and make amazing food partners. Super recommended!

    Of Giboulot’s single vineyard Savigny’s, "Aux Gravains" is probably my favorite. 1/3 of the grapes used for this wine are whole cluster pressed, which adds a bit of grip and complexity to the wine. The fruit is explosive in the mouth with a sweet, juicy middle core which is balanced with structure and acidity. Tannins on the finish are velvety and the finish is long.
