Grand Cru quality white Burgundy
Perfectly cellared back-vintage red Burgundy
We tasted through the wines of Domaine Jean-Michael Gaunoux several
months ago and were in no doubt - we had to import them to
Australia. The combination of a ready-to-go village
Meursault and mature Pommard from a good producer was an irresistible
Securing a parcel of Premier Cru Meursault from the commune's
greatest vineyard was the icing on the cake. Even better, it's from
the exceptional 2014 vintage, arguably the best vintage for white
Burgundy this millennium.
Please see below for details of the wines.
The village Meursault from Gaunoux, from the 2015 vintage, is drinking
superbly now. Open and ready for business, with notes
of white nectarine, apple and grapefruit pith, subtle oak lurking in the
background. Generously proportioned and generously
flavoured. Make it your white wine for the Christmas table -
bring on the prawns and salmon!
