2019 Goisot Bourgogne Aligote

Burgundy, France

A great introduction to one of Burgundy's best value producers - one of the best Aligotes we've tasted.



About The Wine

Unoaked and aged on lees, this is another great value wine from father and son duo Guilhem and Jean-Hugues Goisot.

Their Aligoté often gets overlooked, which is a shame, as it is firmly a core part of their overall line-up. Full of gently ripe white peach, Meyer lemon peel and vivid white florals. It’s quite plush, with a distinct mineral component similar to the chalk dust from a blackboard eraser, though it a really nice way. At its core is that limestone characteristic that defines the soils of the region..

A great value wine that shouldn’t be overlooked for more well known Burgundian regions or producers..

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-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 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

Goisot's electric, old vine Aligoté is drawn from parcels of 40- and 92-year-old vines, planted on the high, cool slopes of St Bris. Aligoté is notorious for requiring old vines and the right soils to produce wines of high quality, and Goisot's holdings--in the lieux-dits of Croix Rougeot, Côte de Coutance and Côte de la Canne--nail the brief. The soils are made up of ancient, limestone rich clays, littered with fossilised oyster shells (i.e. limestone). Goisot's biodynamic management and commitment to harvesting ripe, results in a far more textured, pulpy and sexy wine than you might normally associate with this variety. As always, this was fermented with its native yeasts and raised entirely in tank.

Critic Reviews


The 2019 Bourgogne Aligoté had been bottled the previous day and comes from 50- to 95-year-old vines. It has a striking bouquet of expressive lime, Nashi pear, honeysuckle and pink grapefruit aromas - so vivacious. The palate is well balanced with a spicy entry, offering ginger and lemongrass, notes of white peach, gooseberry and dried apricot and a spicy finish. Excellent." - Neal Martin (

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 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).
