About the Wine

This single-vineyard Chardonnay from Domaine Goisot is named after the beautiful vineyard it hails from, Gueules de Loup (named after the snapdragon flower, but translating literally as 'wolf's mouth').

The vineyard has some of northern Burgundy's purest limestone soils, which sing throughout this wine, offering a cool, crunchy, mineral edge. It has a powerful and elegant mouthfeel, too, with width that reveals its generosity and complexity.

It's a truly gorgeous expression of this marvellous site, with astounding purity and concentration.

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.

Additional Info

From the Importer

Biodynamic. Gueules de Loup is arguably the most picturesque vineyard of the Côtes d’Auxerre 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 wonderful, mineral backbone (although it lacks nothing for flesh as well). The vines are over 40 years old. The Goisots believe this is a terroir quite similar to the 1er Cru Vaillons in Chablis, but there is more ‘white Burgundy’ personality here than we have ever seen from Vaillons. Maturation is all in barrels, on lees.

"The 2019 Bourgogne Côtes d’Auxerre Gueules de Loup Blanc has a fragrant nose of orange pith, frangipane, pear and white Chinese tea, all very detailed and poised. The palate shows wonderful balance and real weight and density. Lightly spiced toward the finish, which feels composed and effortless, offering subtle pineapple and guava on the aftertaste. This is a brilliant wine from Goisot." - 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 1300 668 385 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).
