The producer

Jean-Michel Gaunooux set up his own domaine in Meursault in 1990, after having made wine with his father since the 1970s. His current land holdings include 6 hectares in Meursault, Pommard, and Volnay. In Meursault, Gaunoux has three premier cru sites, of which we currently list the Perrieres. Vineyards are cultivated with minimal use of synthetics and high attention to detail; winemaking generally has a traditional although more hands-off approach. 

The wine

Jean-Michel Gaunoux owns 0.57 hectares in the Perrieres premier cru. Arguably the finest land in Meursault, Perrieres has perfect east-southeast exposure, and is known for making the weightiest and longest lived of Meursaults. Winemaking generally has a traditional although more hands-off approach here and Gaunoux uses up to 30% new oak for the wine’s ageing which lasts up to 16 months.

We choose our wines based on a range of criteria (see how we choose our wines) of which critic scores is just one. Rather than simply highlight the best score to promote a wine, our average critic score is calculated from the scores provided by several respected wine critics, who we follow for specific regions. They do not represent all critic scores and, wherever possible, we try and give more weight to more recent reviews. Where appropriate we consider market-based scores like Global Wine Score or Wine Searcher Average scores.

As a rule, we look to offer wines that achieve a 92/100 average critic score or better and frankly a lot of very good wines simply don’t make the cut. As a high-end provider we want to reflect that positioning in the quality of wines we offer. Such wines are only a tiny fraction of those generally on offer in the market. We believe that an average score is a more conservative and representative approach, but it is still subjective and only offered as a guide to our customers, who will (and should) do their own research. We will add individual critic scores to our website in the future.
