  • TASTING NOTE: “Picked in early October. The Aligoté has been made in tank and just racked for bottling after harvest. There are still some lees in suspension, so not clear yet. Pungent though, with evident weight even in this lighter vintage. Quite perfumed, a touch of melon, an interesting grain to the texture, lifted lemons to finish. Remarkably long.” Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy
  • ABOUT THE WINE: Goisot’s old-vine Aligoté is drawn from parcels of mature vines planted on the high, cool slopes of Saint-Bris. Aligoté is notorious for requiring old vines and suitable soils to produce wines of high quality and Goisot’s holdings nail the brief. The core vineyard is a parcel of 90-year-old Aligoté Dore planted on the high slopes of an old Chardonnay terroir northwest of Saint-Bris. This soil, known as barrémien, is made up of ancient, dense clay littered with blue-grey fossilised oyster shells, several inches long. Then there is a grouping of 45-year-old vines in the lieux-dits of Croix Rougeot, Côte de Coutance and Côte de la Canne, near the Exogyra Virgula vineyard. Goisot’s biodynamic management and commitment to harvesting ripe, yellow fruit results in a far more textured and pulpy wine than you might typically associate with this variety. That said, the cooler 2021 harvest has delivered a wine of vitality and tension, perhaps the raciest release since 2014. This wine is always fermented with native yeasts and raised entirely in tank.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER:  Yonne based Guilhem Goisot is one of the super stars of French wine making. He produces some of the most exciting wines of Burgundy, despite the fact there is not a 1er Cru or Grand Cru classification in sight. How has such a small, quiet, out-of-the-way grower broken into the Chablis elite? In short, they farm some of northern Burgundy’s purest limestone vineyards, possess a large proportion of old vines, and practice some of the region’s most transparent, precise élevage. Most importantly, Guilhem Goisot’s tireless, biodynamic work in the vineyard—emblematic of the finest winegrowers in all of France—places him at the very top in the greater Chablis area. 
    Goisot’s vineyards are planted to 10,000 vines per acre as opposed to the regional average of roughly half this density. The viticulture is certified biodynamic, and yields are kept very low. They use only homeopathic, natural treatments in the vineyard and harvests are done exclusively by hand, with several passes through the vineyard. In the winery, the philosophy is classic ‘minimalist’ with natural yeasts, a long, slow élevage, minimal fining and/or filtration only if required. Very few, if any, Chablis producers can match these exacting viticulture standards.
