About The Wine
Corps de Garde is comprised of a number of small parcels, all of searingly good quality but too small to vinify alone. It also includes fruit from the top vineyards that Goisot make as single vineyards. Needless to say, the pedigree of fruit here is outstanding.
As with all the Goisot wines, the limestone clay soils drive the wine and it opens with a heady mix of chalk, salt and tea leaf florals. The palate is pithy and punchy with the signature creaminess of the region. The close is racy yet deeply concentrated.
A super bottle of white burgundy that would put many a Premier Cru Chablis to shame.
About Domaine Goisot
Guilhem Goisot is one of the rising stars of Burgundy, his family vineyards and winery located in the tiny Saint-Bris appellation, not far from Chablis.
Along with his father, the highly-respected Jean-Hugues Goisot, Guilhem is crafting some of the best value wines coming out of Burgundy at the moment. With a heavy focus on biodynamic farming, these wines from lesser-known Burgundian appellations are some of the hottest property in French wine today.
In fact, France’s leading wine guide, Revue du Vin de France’s Classement des Meilleurs Vins de France has Goisot rated higher than all but 2 other producers (both Chablis Cru producers), in the Yonne section of the guide.
If you want high-quality white Burgundy that won't destroy your bank account, these wines are a must-try.
