Tasting Notes

Jean-Michel Giboulot took over the family business in 1982 and has put together one of the best bang-for-your-buck portfolios in all of Burgundy over the last three-plus decades. His wines are known as great values out of Burgundy's Savigny-les-Beaune appellation and both the reds and whites are equally strong. Giboulet's wines straddle the line between traditional and modern with reds that have crunchier fruit and fine tannins, but plenty of ripeness and pureness of fruit. The whites are done in a feminine style with rounder fruit and a certain elegance that lingers long on the palate. His domaine holdings outside of Savigny are some of the best in the region with eastern exposures that allow for full ripeness and plumpness of flavor.

    Another great vintage from this little producer in Savigny-les-Beaune! The 2016 is likely the best-yet vintage we've received from Jean Michel Giboulot. With a fuller body and soft black fruit, this is a great Pinot to open for those just beginning to drink Burgundy. And yet, it is utterly classic. The fuller body is balanced well with fresh acidity, fine grained tannin, and unparalleled aromatics. Excellent poise and balance here!

    This is Burgundy at its best, and for under $30! It has silky dark cherry and cola berry fruit, with herbs and spice intermingling and refreshing lift for superb balance and drinkability. There’s plenty of weight, balance and structure to cellar for five to ten years, yet it is remarkably expressive right now. 2016 is really turning out to be a collector’s vintage!

    Here is an absolutely fantastic red Burgundy for under $30 (say what?!). The Savigny Les Beaune hits so many right notes. I feel like this bottle is going to be my go to for every upcoming holiday for the end of this year. It's great for Thanksgiving and Christmas. The acidity is really pretty, it's palate earthy, with a nice touch of holiday spirit (cranberries, spices, perhaps a little nutmeg) and the finish is so inviting... I'll take a case please! :-)

    I really appreciate the balance of this wine - it is not as intense as Pommard or as delicate as a Volnay - but sits somewhere in between. This is very expressive in the nose with substantial red cherry and spice notes. As with most of Jean-Michel Giboulot's wines, my nose likes to loiter in the glass to take in the aromas as the wine opens up. The acidity is lively, and the overall structure is there to carry this through for another 5 years. Give this bottle a good 30+ minutes of air before consuming.
