K&L 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.

    Powerful Pommard, with strong aromas of black cherry and black raspberry. This wine has nice concentration, density and grip with spicy notes of cinnamon and clove, yet stays crisp and crunchy in the mouth. A solid release!

    Most of you who know me well, are aware that I have not seriously collected Burgundy for my wine cellar since the 1999 vintage was released. And not because I am getting to the age where those wines might outlive me or that I am sitting on 200-plus cases in my cellar. I just wasn’t convinced that such vintages as 2005 and 2009 in Burgundy, in general, were as exceptional as the press presented to us. I did buy a few wines from each vintage, but not in the quantity that I did with the 1999s. That is about to change! The 2015 is one of those to-die-for vintages and even the declassified productions are truly outstanding. This production from Giboulot is a great example of what I am asserting. I honestly believe that this is declassified Pommard, probably from the lower hillside of their vineyard sites, and it is a remarkable wine. Rich in appearance and color, the opulent nose is loaded with classic rose petal, plumy, blackberry fruit tones with a lovely creamy to forest floor background. This all carries over exceptionally well to a broad, rich, viscous, silky, round palate impression that leads to a long, warm finish. I am going to both age some of this Gem for five to ten years and drink it near-term, and Rusty has ordered me to bring home several cases of this gorgeous puppy. By the way, I also purchased for my cellar a half of a case of the 2015 Domaine Giboulot Pommard, “En Brescul” which is truly great wine, to which I plan to age for well over ten years. BOTH ARE EXCEPTIONAL VALUES!!! …..A K&L WINE MERCHANTS’ DIRECT IMPORT….. ***** 12.5% ABV *****
    Drink from 2025 to 2035

    This is the darkest and the most brooding of the 2015 red Giboulot portfolio. Blackberries galore on the palate with subtle spice and a rather full body for what I typically expect from Burgundy. You could pour this at a California pinot tasting and fool everyone into thinking it was from Sonoma. This is a richer and fatter Pommard that drinks beautifully already in its youth.

    I had to do a double-take when I saw the price of this wine. I love Pommard, but rarely am I able to spend less than $80..but less then $40 and get a great bottle? Unheard of...Purple fruits, subtle spice with hints of graphite and gingerbread. Tons of length and complexity this wine slowly unfolds on the palate. Ready to drink now, this is an incredible bargain.
    Top Value! Drink from 2017 to 2030
