Pink Grapefruit, Mango, Mineral
Saint-Bris AOC, Burgundy
Tucked away in the small village ofSaint-Brisbetween Chablis and Auxerre, Domaine Goisot really deserves to be better known. Guilhem and father Jean-Hugues Goisot, like all top vignerons in France, recognise that great wine comes from great viticulture, and they work tirelessly in the vines to ensure that their parcels are as well treated as is possible. Their viticulture is certified biodynamic, with great pains taken to produce as natural an environment for the wines, with a particular goal of stimulating the natural defenses of the wines against disease and depredation. We truly believe they are one of the best value Burgundy estates out there.
Saint-Bris is the only appellation in Burgundy that grows Sauvignon Blanc, with similar soils to Chablis bringing mineral notes to the wine. Grapes are harvested relatively late to help express the terrior. Fully destemmed before a slow and gentle pneumatic pressing, the malolactic fermentation is allowed and the wine is matured in stainless steel on its fine lees. Fining and/or filtration only when required.
