About The Wine
A single-vineyard Chardonnay, Gueules de Loup is perhaps this region's most picturesque vineyard and is named after the beautiful flowers (snapdragons) that flourish in its soils.
This one-hectare site faces south/southeast, and the soils are almost pure limestone, which lends this cuvée its cooler, crunchier, mineral personality. The Goisots believe it is a terroir quite similar to the Vaillons 1er cru in Chablis (not faint praise at all).
Complex aromas of, spices, as well as very ripe fruit. It has a powerful and elegant mouthfeel with width that reveals its generosity and complexity. A true expression of this beautiful site.
Guilhem Goisot is one of the rising stars of Burgundy.
Along with his father, the highly-respected Jean-Hughes 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 Chabis Cru producers), in the Yonne section of the guide.
The critical acclaim for their wines is absolutely stellar. They are comfortably some of the best value you will find from the region. If you want high-quality white Burgundy that won't destroy your bank account, these wines are a must-try.
