2008 Michel Gaunoux Corton Renardes$99.99
As we have mentioned before the 2008 Michel Gaunoux red Burgundies are starting to drink great. 2008 was Alexandre Gaunoux best vintage from when he took over the wine making reins in 1990. This is a spot on classic Corton Renardes to drink over the next decade or two, and you will be hard pressed to find a better grand cru red Burgundy deal. A limited amount in stock!
Burghound 93 pts! There is a hint of vegetal here that actually adds breadth to the sauvage, cool and wonderfully fresh and complex nose of red currants, earth and humus. The silky yet focused, intense and overtly austere big-bodied flavors possess an excellent sense of underlying tension on the still exceptionally tight finish that is supported by a very firm tannic spine. This is terrific as it has a strikingly sophisticated mouth feel and superb aging potential. (Drink starting 2023)
