(...) Goisot is so far ahead of anyone else in St-Bris that it is almost embarrassing. I would go further and state that, in my mind, they are one of the most interesting and exciting growers in Burgundy.
About The Wine
The commune of Saint-Bris is a relative newcomer to Burgundy, once considered part of Chablis it became an AOC in its own right in 2003 and Domaine Goisot are the undeniable star of the region.
Saint-Bris has an even greater presence of Kimmeridgian limestone and chalk in its soils than Chablis but unlike Chablis the real affinity here lies with Sauvignon Blanc.
Moury is one of two sauvignon made by Goisot, both beautiful wines that scream Burgundy. This is pulpy, mineral, rocky and fine and there is a creaminess to the finish that belies varietal expectations.
We've said it once but it's worth saying again, Burgundy first, variety second.
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.
