Tasting Notes

Some commentators have characterised Saint Bris Sauvignon Blanc generally as less concentrated than the Sauvignon Blanc wines of Loire's Sancerre or Pouilly Fume. This wine does have a roundness or ripeness giving a taste in the white peach spectrum; even a touch of tropical fruit initially. But you will also find a completing citrus element giving good acidity and power in the finish. Nice complexity. - Michael L

Sauvignon Blanc. Exogyra virgula is the name of the comma-shaped, limestone fossils of ancient shellfish that are so abundant in the soils of this part of the world. Kimmeridgian limestone of this kind brings a wonderful salinity and smoky freshness to the wines of northern Burgundy—a character we readily associate with Chablis, and one we can also find in this wine. - Importer Note

Like all of France's greatest winegrowers, father and son Jean-Hughes and Guilhem Goisot work tirelessly in their vineyards to produce the highest standards of grapes possible. The vineyards are planted to 10,000 vines per acre as opposed to the regional average of roughly half this density. The viticulture is certified biodynamic and yields are kept very low. They use only homeopathic, natural treatments in the vineyard and harvests are done exclusively by hand, with several passes through the vineyard. In the winery the philosophy is classic 'minimalist' with natural yeasts, a long, slow elevage, minimal fining and/or filtration only if required. Very few, if any, Chablis producers can match these exacting viticulture standards.The wines of Domaine Goisot are for those open minded drinkers who don't drink vineyard names but rather are more concerned with the quality and integrity they find in the glass ‚– in this case they will find a great deal of both. These are intense, textural yet racy, mineral wines with a rich, stony, earthy complexity that speak loudly of the chalky soils that typify the greater Chablis area. Think of everything you would want from a great Chablis producer (i.e, more richness, complexity and breed than you typically find) and you will be on the right track. - Rob Walters
