Domaine Michel Gaunoux (Pommard) 1999-2008

Het domaine Michel Gaunoux uit Pommard maakt finesserijke, ouderwetse (in de goede zin des woords!) bourgognes met een groot rijpingspotentieel. De beroemde bourgognecriticus Allen Meadows (Burghound) is extreem lovend: “If you enjoy traditionally made Burgundy then the Gaunoux wines are highly recommended as this is one of the finest domaines in all of Burgundy”. Met uitzondering van de Beaune geeft Meadows al de onderstaande wijnen dan ook tussen de 92 en 95 punten (en hij is lang niet zo scheutig met hoge scores als Robert Parker!).

De proeverij vindt plaats op zondag 26 juni om 16.30 uur bij La Cuisine Française, Herengracht 314, 1016 CD Amsterdam. Onder meer de volgende wijnen komen op de proeftafel:

2008 Pommard “Les Rugiens”: (from a .69 ha parcel in Rugiens-Bas). This is also highly perfumed and perhaps even purer with high-toned red pinot fruit liberally laced with wet stone influences. The detailed and intensely mineral-driven mediumbodied flavors possess a silky texture and a highly sophisticated mouth feel, all wrapped in a long, refined and utterly classic finish. This is quite simply terrific. 94, € 55,00

2001 Pommard “Grand Epenots”: (from a large 1.74 ha parcel). This remains beautifully fresh and pure with complex and elegant aromas that speak of red currant, plum and violets. The detailed and delicately mineral-infused medium-bodied flavors exhibit admirable purity on the balanced and linear finish blessed with plenty of verve. Lovely. 93, € 56,00

2001 Pommard “Les Rugiens”: (from a .69 ha parcel in Rugiens-Bas). In contrast to the completely primary nose of the ’01 Grand Epenots, here there is some secondary development that only adds to the overall appeal of the aromas. The rich, pure and noticeably more mineral-driven flavors exude precision on the powerful, concentrated and simply stunningly persistent finish that explodes onto the palate. This is a ‘wow’ wine for its intensity and impeccable balance. 95, € 69,00

1999 Pommard “Grand Epenots”: (from a large 1.74 ha parcel). A perfumed, complex and mostly still primary nose offers up earthy red berry fruit, underbrush and a touch of animale that can also be found on the generous and quite fleshy flavors that possess excellent volume as well as buckets of dry extract that almost render the firm and ripe tannins invisible on the massively long finish. Wow, this is a stunner of a wine with still plenty of upside potential remaining. 95, € 79,00
