Domaine Michel Gaunoux make some of the most interesting, yet hard to source wines of any producer in Burgundy. After years of trying, we were invited to visit them earlier in 2016 and found something very special: the 2011 Bourgogne Rouge.
This deep, rich, outstanding Pinot Noir transports you straight to the heart of the Cote de Beaune, immediately reminding you just how good the wines from here can be. Even better, it also represents an outright bargain for this sort of quality.
Gaunoux is one of the few remaining estates in Burgundy today to offer older vintages for sale, usually in tiny quantities. All of which makes this 2011 so compelling. Anyone with a passion for Burgundy and Pinot Noir should have Gaunoux in the cellar, but the mere trickle of supply makes this a tough ambition to realise.
As such, the 2011 Bourgogne Rouge is not to be missed if available.

Bright, slick ruby. Coats the glass, lots of extract. Bottle slightly chilled as straight from the cellar. Dark, deep cherry nose, fragrant, fresh raspberry, candy floss. Gorgeous, fresh, crunchy sweet red fruit, very complete. Lovely ripeness throughout. Some grip and perfume on the finish. Outstanding, generous Bourgogne Rouge. Drink now or over the next 5+ years.
