Jean-Michel Gaunoux has brought extraordinary energy and drive to the seven-hectare estate he took over in 1990. Focused around Meursault, he also owns vineyards in Puligny, Volnay and Pommard. Jean-Michel’s Meursaults are classically rich and opulent with fresh balancing acidity. Jean-Michel is one of our few suppliers to keep back a proportion of his production every year in order to be able to offer older vintages when the wines are fully mature.
Well developed with ripe, tropical fruit on the nose and an enticing note of honey leading to an intense and concentrated palate with well balanced acidity and a crisp, clean, lengthy finish.
Food matches you can try with this wine are fried shrimp with peanut sauce, Chinese barbecued pork with garlic sauce or salmon mousse with salmon roe and crudites. Alternatively, it is lovely with roast chicken!
