Details

Hautes Cotes de Nuits Emmanuel Giboulot, 100% Pinot Noir, no chaptalisation, very fresh, very natural, elegant Pinot for summer drinking. A delightful glass of classic Burgundy. Giboulot reds are not chaptalised so the pale colour is matched by a refreshing sour cherry and cranberry palate with crunchy acidity and the firm backbone or racy Pinot Noir. This is a red wine for serving slightly chilled on the terrace with some salty appetisers or with some grilled oily fish.


Emmanuel Giboulet is somewhat of a renegade in the Burgundy bubble, resisting wholeheartedly the use of chemicals and pesticides in the vineyard. Stemming from his father's move to organic production after his mother became ill and they realised the impact chemicals were having on the land. Since taking over the estate in 1985 he has sought to increase the biodiversity and learn how to keep the vines healthy with natural balance. This behaviour risked getting him landed in jail when the appellation called for all vineyards to be sprayed with a chemical to protect the spread of 'flavescence dorée' and he refused. Luckily, due to huge support and the opening of the debate, he was allowed to continue and his approach has stood the test of time. He has now grown his holdings to nearly 10 hectares with small plots all over the Cotes de Beaune and some in Cotes de Nuits. He remains committed to his principles and he even has the enviable reputation of being 'supposedly' the only producer in Burgundy never to chaptalise his wines, and he never uses new oak, just used barrels. A purist through and through, for pure, authentic Burgundy, Giboulot is your man.
