No one but no one delivers more quality for the price than Goisot. The quality is flat out amazing, particularly given the modest appellations with which he works.
About The Wine
Fie Gris (Sauvignon Gris), a low yielding cousin of Sauvignon Blanc, had been all but abandoned in the Auxerre region but the Goisots believe firmly in the quality of the variety and their Biodynamically farmed Fie Gris vineyard is a rare delight.
Stone fruit and pithy grapefruit take the lead but there is earth, ginger and spice too. The texture is all Burgundy, simultaneously waxy and creamy with a long cool finish. Exceptional value and a joyful discovery for Burgundy lovers.
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.
