Lot #48. Michel Gaunoux Corton Les Renardes 2002

Description: Consists of 12 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 93 JG.
"The 2002 Corton “Renardes” is a really superb example of this vintage and one of the best 2002s I have tasted of late. The wide open and very pure nose delivers a fine mix of red currants, strawberries, cherries, a touch of coriander, incipient notes of bonfire, orange zest and a great base of stony minerality. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, pure and rock solid at the core, with beautiful balance, tangy acids, moderate tannins and a very long, focused and complex finish. Admittedly, this is Corton, which is often one of the most transparent reds in the Côte de Beaune, but I get a strong signature of soil in the 2002 Gaunoux Renardes that is very exciting and often missing in many of the higher pedigree examples of this vintage that I have tasted in the last few years. A beautiful wine . . ." John Gilman, View From the Cellar, Sep/Oct 2011, Issue #35
