Pair of Gems from Goutte D'Or and Perrieres

You can't go wrong with these bottles from Jean Michel Gaunoux.  Excellent press and excellent prices on two of the top vineyards in Meursault.  The Gaunoux family have been in the Cote d'Or for a few hundred years, which explains all the amazing vineyard sites in the portfolio.  We have been enjoying the 2017s, 2019s, and 2020s that we had in stock, but now that they are nearly all sold out, it's time to grab some more of these fantastic Meursaults!

2020 Jean Michel Gaunoux Meursault 1er Cru Gouttes D'Or - VM 92-94
"The 2020 Meursault Goutte d’Or 1er Cru comes from a single parcel of 40-50 year old vines, aged in around 40% new oak. There was just a touch of reduction on the nose when I tasted this cuvée that made it difficult to read. But the palate is promising with a light creaminess on the entry, fine acidity, good weight with a slightly honeyed Meursault-Charmes-like finish. Give this 3-5 years in bottle and you'll have a stonkingly good Meursault in your mitts." - Vinous, Nov 2021

2020 Jean Michel Gaunoux Meursault 1er Cru Perrieres - VM 94-96
"The 2020 Meursault Les Perrières 1er Cru comes from a single 0.58-hectare parcel just next to the Clos de Perrières. It has a precise and focused bouquet, crushed stone filtering through the citrus fruit, very vivacious though at the same time, understated. It knows that it doesn’t have to show off. The palate is beautifully poised with ample concentration, very fine acidity and neatly integrated oak. One of those samples where I could have happily not used the spittoon. This comes highly recommended." - Vinous, Nov 2021
