  • TASTING NOTE: “Plenty of colour – but no pigeage. Wide, very silky, the green less overt in the flavours – a silky wine until a little velvet tannin starts to show itself. Broad and super finishing – waves of finishing flavour.” Bill Nanson, Burgundy Report 
  • ABOUT THE WINE: Goisot’s Corps de Garde Pinot is drawn from three mature plots (40 to 70 years old) in Côte de la Ronce/Haut de la Ronce, Côte de Tue Chien and Gueules de Loup. These vineyards are on Kimmeridgian limestone slopes mixed with red-brown and white clays. All the grapes were destemmed, and there was no pigeage as Goisot prefers to extract tannins gently and only from the grape’s skins rather than the pips. Macerated and vinified in open wood fermenters, this wine was transferred to 300-litre Burgundian barriques (20% new, with the remainder between one and five years old) for 12 months. 
  • 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.
