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. He's recently made the conversion over to organic farming, and 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.

    From one of the best parcels in Beaune, Jean-Michel Giboulot has crafted one fantastic wine. Supple and fresh with crunchy cranberry, red cherry fruits, earthy notes, smooth tannins, and a finish that won't quit, this is both refined and substantial -- such complexity! This is completely accessible now and has excellent aging potential, too. In fact, I grabbed a few to put away for a few years -- and a few to consume this weekend.

    This is a substantial yet balanced wine with hearty aromas of sweet dark fruit and just a slight whiff of oak. The middle is layered with rich fruit, spice and a hint of game where the chewy texture is lifted by fresh acidity.

    2015 Domaine Jean-Michel Giboulot Beaune 1er Cru "Aux Clos du Roi" is probably the fullest in body of all Giboulot wines. It’s supple and very approachable with soft tannins, black raspberry and black Tartarian cherry. But despite being rich it doesn’t lack fresh crunchy acidity and good backbone of spice.

    This wine has gobs of black cherry notes on the nose and more of that fruit on the palate, but with more restraint than some of the juicier 2015s from Giboulot. The finish has loads of spice and just a hint of earth to counterbalance some of that fruit. This should age nicely.
