Located in Saint-Bris near Chablis the wines are very similar in character. You will find notes of pears and apple with hazlenuts and stoney mineral vibe. Slight creamy texture from malolactic fermentation gives this depth

Biodynamic, Low sulfur, Vegan

Tucked away in the small village of Saint-Bris between Chablis and Auxerre, Domaine Goisot really deserves to be better known. The single-vineyard Chardonnays are a revelation. Guilhem and father Jean-Hugues Goisot, like all top vignerons in France, recognise that great wine comes from great viticulture, and they work tirelessly in the vines to ensure that their parcels are as well treated as is possible. Their viticulture is certified biodynamic, with great pains taken to produce as natural an environment for the wines, with a particular goal of stimulating the natural defenses of the wines against disease and depredation. Yields are also kept very low by Saint-Bris standards, in an effort to produce world-class white wines that defy the dictates of the late nineteenth century officials who downgraded Saint-Bris and cast it from the Chablisienne constellation.

The estate has worked organically since 1993 and is nowadays certified biodynamic. Their goal is to concentrate their efforts on the potential of this terroir. The soil in Chablis is known as Kimmeridgian. Located in a sedimentary basin, this low-lying zone was gradually covered by the material that today make up the soil and subsoil of this wine region. One finds subsoils of grey marl which alternate with bands of limestone, sometimes very rich in fossils of Exogyra virgula, a small oyster that is characteristic of the marl from the Middle and Upper Kimmeridgian.
