Organic, and biodynamic farming. 15 to 50 year old vines are planted at a density of over 10,000 vines per hectare. Guilheum Goisot has now joined his parents as the fourth generation to work the vineyards by hand, and the family has staked their reputation on risky late harvests.
This organic and biodynamic domaine can trace its origins back to the 14th century, and its wine cellars which date back to the 11th century. The vines are densely planted, and from them come wines of great precision and purity.
Described Michel Bettane as a “top domaine… the undisputed leader in the Auxerrois”
David Schildknecht wrote in the Wine Advocate (October, 2010), that the Aligoté from Goisot is “among Burgundy’s rare sensational values”, and the Cote d’Auxeurrois Blanc, “one of the region’s outstanding values”. Of the St Bris, Schildknecht noted it was “powerful, richly-textured, ripe, yet foundationally firm Sauvignon offers a terrific example of why this grape in this place deserves its unique appellation.”
