Tasting Notes

Jean-Michel is the third Giboulot to head the family estate in Savigny-lès-Beaune, having presided over the 12 hectares in Beaune, Pommard, and Savigny since 1982. Following Jean-Michel's recent conversion to organic farming, the wines have become fresher and rounder, and the increased proportion of destemmed fruit has helped this transition in style. Much as with Giboulot's 2015s, his 2016s are undoubtedly some of the best we've tasted yet from the portfolio, one that we've been working with directly now for a number of years.

    This new vintage of Savigny-Les-Beaune is an absolute winner for its price range. whether you are looking for a nice Burgundy to sit and sip on a spring day, or a wine to bring to a dinner party, you can't go wrong here. With a nose of tart cherry and cranberry, roasted red apple, and subtle baking spices that intermingle with light red and purple florals; a palate that is round, driven by cherry, with a bit of a leather and mushroom, you will be hard pressed to find a more pleasant red burgundy for under $30.

    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.
