Guilhem Goisot is one of the rising stars of Burgundy.
Along with his father, the highly-respected Jean-Hughes Goisot, Guilhem is crafting some of the best value wines coming out of Burgundy at the moment. With a heavy focus on biodynamic farming, these wines from lesser-known Burgundian appellations are some of the hottest property in French wine today.
The critical acclaim for their wines is absolutely stellar. They are comfortably some of the best value you will find from the region. If you want high-quality white Burgundy that won't destroy your bank account, these wines are a must-try.
Their Aligote offers supreme value for money. It's sourced from vines aged from 40 to 92-years-old, growing on the cool slopes of St Bris. These old vines planted at high density produce a wine with great depth of flavour with a serious mineral backbone. It's a brilliant way to sneak into Burgundy with breaking the bank account.
Goisot's electric, old vine Aligoté is drawn from parcels of 40- and 92-year-old vines, planted on the high, cool slopes of St Bris. Aligoté is notorious for requiring old vines and the right soils to produce wines of high quality, and Goisot's holdings--in the lieux-dits of Croix Rougeot, Côte de Coutance and Côte de la Canne--nail the brief. The soils are made up of ancient, limestone rich clays, littered with fossilised oyster shells (i.e. limestone). Goisot's biodynamic management and commitment to harvesting ripe, results in a far more textured, pulpy and sexy wine than you might normally associate with this variety. As always, this was fermented with its native yeasts and raised entirely in tank.
