Domaine Michel Gaunoux
About Domaine Michel Gaunoux
A family estate that comes “warmly recommended” by Burgundy expert William Kelley (Wine Advocate), Domaine Michel Gaunoux remains one of “the region’s best-kept secrets”, producing “formidably structured wines” (WA) of which lovers of traditionally styled red Burgundy should take note.
The tiny 10 ha Domaine Michel Gaunoux comprises parcels in the "Corton Les Renardes" Grand Cru and several superb Pommard Premier Cru plots. The Domaine was founded by the Gaunoux family in 1885 and is now managed by Alexandre Gaunoux. Unique in that their wines can only be purchased post-bottling, much like Château Latour, they only release wines when they are deemed ready. Winemaking methods here are also very traditional, with late harvests, natural yeasts and ageing with minimal new oak.
