Domaine Goisot Saint-Bris 'Exogyra Virgula' 2019Goisot
Saint-Bris, the only appellation in Burgundy that grows Sauvignon Blanc, is located just a few kilometres west of Chablis and has similar soils.
This wine has a lot in common with Sancerre, but with the oyster shell and minerality that come from Chablis.
Domaine Guilhem et Jean-Hugues Goisot is one of the best kept secrets in Burgundy, despite a wine-making history stretching back to the 14th century. Father and son team Jean-Hughes and Guilhem Goisot are making some of the best wine in the region, all from biodynamic vineyards located in and around the village of Saint-Bris, only a few kilometres west of Chablis. If you are looking for world-class wines with incredible value, look no further than Domaine Goisot.
Jean-Hughes was one of the first to farm organically in the region in 1993. The domaine has become a pioneer in biodynamic practices, understanding that truly great wine is made in the vineyard. Incredibly low yields, hand harvested grapes, indigenous yeast fermentations, and minimal intervention in the cellar result in impressively complex and terroir driven wines.
These exceptional wines have not gone unnoticed. France’s leading wine guide, La Revue du vin de France, rated Domaine Goisot one of the top producers in the Yonne/Chablis area. Wine critic, Neal Martin of Vinous, is also a huge fan, calling Goisot one of the most interesting and exciting growers in Burgundy. He adds that he ‘cannot recommend highly enough. Moreover, prices remain so reasonable that I feel almost guilty when I purchase them myself.’
