LE CLASSEMENT 2016
What the critics are saying:
“The [wines of the] hugely talented Jean-Hughes Goisot … deliver flat out amazing quality, particularly given the modest appellations with which he works. Despite the fact that I have said it before, it’s worth repeating that I highly recommend these wines”. Allen Meadows, Burghound Issue #32
“Here is surely one of the greatest domaines of the Yonne (the departement that includes Chablis), who sadly does not have the chance to exploit the vines of Chablis yet realize exceptional results in the tiny commune of St Bris that, like it’s celebrated neighbor (Chablis) possesses a sub soil of Kimmeridgien chalk.” Michel Bettane, Le Grand Guide des Vins de France
The wines of Domaine Goisot are for those open minded drinkers who don’t drink vineyard names but rather are more concerned with the quality and integrity they find in the glass – in this case they will find a great deal of both. These are intense, textural yet racy, mineral wines with a rich, stony, earthy complexity that speak loudly of the chalky soils that typify the greater Chablis area. Think of everything you would want from a great Chablis producer (i.e, more richness, complexity and breed than you typically find) and you will be on the right track.
