Goisot’s Corps de Garde Pinot Noir is drawn from three mature plots (40 to 70 years old) in Côte de la Ronce/Haut de la Ronce, Côte de Tue Chien and Gueules de Loup. These vineyards are on slopes of Kimmeridgian limestone, mixed with both red-brown and white clays.
All the grapes were destemmed and there was no pigeage as Goisot prefers to extract tannins gently and only from the grape’s skins rather than the pips. Macerated and vinified in open wood fermenters, this wine was then transferred to 300-litre Burgundian barriques (20% new, with the remainder between one and five years old), for 12 months. - Importer Note
