Like any part of Burgundy, the Côtes d’Auxerre is in fact a mosaic of small climates and vineyards. Goisot farm a mind boggling 44 individual parcels, with only the finest three Chardonnay sites bottled individually: Gueules de Loup, Biaumont, and Gondonne. This biodynamic Chardonnay is drawn from an old vine, single hectare parcel in a site called Les Biaumonts, at 250 metres above sea level. The vines here are between 32-48 years old and the soils share a similar Kimmeridgian profile to Gueules de Loup. Biaumont has a sunnier, south/southwest aspect however and there is also more brown clay in the still very rocky soil. The 2015 is an incredibly earthy and mineral wine, like a top notch 1er cru Chablis with a touch of florals from a top Puligny thrown in. There’s mixed, white flowers, white peach and salty, rocky earth notes, genuine density and a long, long saline finish. Stunning wine.
