2015 Domaine Jean-Michel Giboulot Savigny-lès-Beaune

SKU #1305886

Jean-Michel is the third Giboulot to head the family estate in Savigny-lès-Beaune, having resided over the 12 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 tasted yet from the portfolio, one that we've been working with directly now for a number of years.

I've tasted this Pinot Noir several times over the past 6 months and while the notes of tart cherry, allspice and earth remain consistent,​​ my nose seems to find something intriguing and wants to linger in the glass much longer every time. You can absolutely drink this now but I recommend you decant it. With a bit of patience and breathing room it reveals its gorgeous layers and complexity. Do yourself a favor and grab a few to put in your cellar for a few years too.

One of the best value red Burgundies in store. Aromas of dried red fruits and earth. On the palate, cranberry and strawberry flavors, along with rocky mineral notes. There is a pleasant zippy acidity to the wine, making it very food friendly. Can be enjoyed on its own or with various culinary offerings like salmon or roast chicken

This is a reasonably priced Burgundy that is classic and reflects the vintage. It has the nice expressive fruit that is typical of this vintage. But it is not all about the fruit because that wine is balanced and layered with complex flavors. Dry and delicious, it is nice alone but will be better with food.

If you like delicate, lighter-style red Burgundy that's aromatically oriented, this is a wine you must try. Despite the warmer vintage, this Burgundy has retained its elegance and light-bodied poise. This is a more classic expression of the region, combining crunchy cranberry and sweet baking spice with soft, fine tannin. This will easily be a favorite of mine once the warmer weather hits, and is perfect now with lighter dishes or all on its own.

The wines of Savigny-lès-Beaune are some of the most affordable in all of Burgundy, as well as open-knit, charming, and accessible. They are the perfect choice for anyone just beginning to explore the region. This wonderful villages bottling from Domaine Jean-Michel Giboulot is an excellent example. As vintages go, 2015 is among the best, and the quality really shines through here. Notes of clove and cinnamon spice on the nose, along with a hint of violets. On the palate, a mix of red and black fruits, cherry and raspberry. There is ample ripeness here with good concentration, lively acidity and fine tannins. A superb effort, and a terrific value. Drink now, or over the next one to three years.

2015 Domaine Jean-Michel Giboulot Savigny-lès-Beaune is full of ripe bing cherry aromas. The palate is richly textured and layered with spice, dark cherry and plum, firm tannins and bright acidity. It shows ripeness of the vintage, yet stays restrained and well structured

The standard Savigny les Beaune from Giboulot is the most traditional of the 2015 bunch, with grittier tannins and more meaty flavors of earth and licorice. The ripeness of the vintage is still there, but it's much more restrained which allows the secondary flavors to shine through. Great for a simple dinner or roasted chicken.

The Giboulot wines are really showcasing the warmth and ripeness of the 2015 vintage in Burgundy. This Savigny-les--Beaune opens immediately with ripe wild cherry, sweet raspberry, and notes of darker berry with just a little earth. The body moves along with balancing acid, rich lovely red fruit and a grippy finish.

This is one of the darker, juicier Savigny Les Beaunes I have had the pleasure of tasting. Lots of black currants, plums and blueberry flavors with a hint of mocha fill the mouth and linger on the finish. Quite delicious!

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Burgundy

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
