This family estate, located in the heart of northern Burgundy
in Saint-Bris Le Vineux in the Yonne department, covers 30 hectares between the municipalities of Saint-Bris and Irancy not far from Chablis
and Auxerre. In 1979, Ghislaine and Jean-Hugues Goisot took over the family business by adopting a different method of growing vines that was more respectful of the environment and the appellations. Domaine Goisot has been certified in organic farming since 2001. In 2005, their son, Guilhem and his wife Marie, joined the estate, which obtained biodynamic certification the same year. The wines produced are bottled exclusively from the estate's own vines. The average age of the vines is 45 years but some are now over 90.
Domaine Goisot vinifies and matures its wines in the center of the old village, deep inside cellars from the 11th and 12th centuries, and produces 130,000 bottles a year in red and white. The reds are made exclusively from Pinot noir which display notes ranging from slightly spicy red fruits to stewed black berries. The whites are made from three grape varieties: 41% Sauvignon Blanc, 23% Aligoté and 36% Chardonnay, and give off a toasted nose of cinnamon and ripe fruit, as well as small white flowers and spices. Like its neighbour Chablis, Domaine Goisot benefits from a geology rich in limestone. The wines thus have a minerality and purity that ensure great aging capacity. Plot selections such as Biaumont, Gondonne and Gueules de Loup, in the Côtes d'Auxerre appellation, represent the emblematic wines of Domaine Goisot by their consistency and intensity. Biaumont, for example, offers bright and restrained fruit, Gondonne has a peppery character and Gueules de Loup is stricter and straighter. In the Saint Bris appellation, Exogyra Virgula is remarkably fleshy and firm for the appellation and Corps de garde also retains energy and freshness.
Just like those of Domaine Colinot, the old vintages of Domaine Goisot faithfully express the terroirs of Irancy, and you can find both at Vins & Millésimes, which offers the finest wines and grands crus online.
