2007 Michel Gaunoux Corton-Renardes$99.99
John Gilman 93 pts! I really like drinking the 2007 vintage wines right now and the Gaunoux family’s ’07 Renardes is a very strong example of this high quality vintage. The bouquet is starting to show some lovely secondary layers of complexity, offering up scents of cherries, spiced meats, stony soil tones, incipient notes of coffee and sous bois, a touch of iron, bonfires and lovely Corton spice elements in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and blossoming beautifully, with a good core, fine-grained tannins and excellent balance and grip on the complex and focused finish. This is just starting to drink with generosity and still has a long life ahead of it, but it is now offering up a lot of pleasure in the glass. (Drink between 2017 - 2050)
Jasper Morris 93 pts! The colour is paling and the red has become just lightly orange. The bouquet is pure and gentle. Deeply charming, fully ready, offering a lovely little crunch at the back along with a slight sucrosity. The finish stretches out beautifully. All the elements are in balance. A fine wine by any standards, and outstanding for the vintage.
