About
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.

From The Importer

Fié Gris used to be a much more commonly planted variety around Auxerre, but its fickle, low-yielding nature (on average it yields 35-40% less than Sauvignon Blanc) sealed its fate. Luckily for us, the Goisots have persevered and today, their old vines of Fié Gris flourish in the rich, red-brown clay and limestone soils of the Côte de la Canne, Cornevin and Moury vineyards.

It’s always one of Burgundy’s leftfield gems, and Goisot has nailed this release.

“The 2018 Saint-Bris Corps de Garde has some of the most expressive and open aromatics of Goisot’s 2018s, featuring white peach, grapefruit, kiwi fruit and light fumé scents. The palate is beautifully balanced, with a waxy texture, expressing the Sauvignon Gris to full effect on its stem ginger and rhubarb-tinged finish. Seductive, but I would love to revisit it with bottle age.”- Neal Martin (Vinous)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
