Domaine Francois Gaunoux is a family-run winery located in Meursault. Today they have approx. 10 acres of associated vineyards scattered around the farm, and the winery is run by daughter Claudine Gaunoux. There is a focus on nature, the area, the well-being of the vineyard and a "hands-off" principle in the wine cellar. Claudine appreciates the natural characteristics of terroir and the grapes, and is therefore also very careful about using oak in production - most wines in newer vintages are therefore exclusively stored in steel tanks. It's a modern approach to winemaking in Burgundy, and it yields some really interesting fruit-driven wines where the individual field is allowed to shine through.
The wine is straw yellow in the glass, but at the very light and bright end of the scale. The wine smells of classic Meursault, but without the heavy voluminous barrel character. Volume, on the other hand, is found in the intense fruity character, which primarily offers yellow fruits, melon, lemon and a hint of something tropical. Taste-wise, the wine has a good concentrated fullness, marked acidity and a generally modern expression.
