The palate is fresh, vibrant and very saline... Superb.
About The Wine
It's rare to find Sauvignon Blanc in this part of the world, but this old vine offering from Guilhem Goisot is absolutely worth a look.
From the northern reaches of the region, this is a cool, textural, focused expression of the variety. It shows as something like Sauv-meets-Chablis, with tremendous inward focus and a distinct sense of minerality. Great drinking here from the Burgundian phenom.
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.
