some 97’s from emmanuel giboulot

giboulot
For background on this domaine I recommend you check out Bert’s super piece here. These were my first taste of wines from this interesting Beaune estate, and given the vintage I think I’d be very happy to try more:
1997 Emmanuel Giboulot, Rully 1er La Pucelletry to find this wine...
Golden colour. The nose is honied and very faintly oxidative – but in a mature wine way rather than a premature problematic way. This is a big mouthful of wine with soft, nice texture coupled to toasty depth. Ready now and very good.
Rebuy – Yes
1997 Emmanuel Giboulot, Côte de Beaune Le Grand Chatelainetry to find this wine...
Pale golden. The nose is similar to the Rully and quite interesting. The palate is ripe, pleasant and has almost good acidity. Not the punch of the Rully but a nice, mature drink still.
Rebuy – Yes
1997 Emmanuel Giboulot, Beaune Lalunetry to find this wine...
Roasted red fruit notes on the nose. The palate shows good concentration, sweet ripe fruit and a good balance. There is still some tannin and no rush to drink this. A very successful 97.
Rebuy – Yes
