Lot #47. Michel Gaunoux Corton Les Renardes 2001

Description: Consists of 12 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 93+ JG.
"The 2001 Corton “Renardes” from Domaine Gaunoux is now into a lovely, autumnal point in its evolution and beginning to show is ultimate shape and style. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a complex mélange of forest floor, cherries, venison, coffee, woodsmoke, lovely soil tones and a topnote of fresh herbs. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and complex, with a good core, moderate tannins and excellent length and grip on the focused and soil-driven finish. In my experience, this wine is now into its phase where it is defined very strongly by its more autumnal soil elements, and with another five years or so of bottle age, the red fruit will start to rise up again and vie with the soil elements for the guiding role in the wine. It is an outstanding bottle of Corton with years and years of life still ahead of it, but which is already drinking very well indeed." John Gilman, View From the Cellar, Nov/Dec 2017, Issue #72
