This terrific, biodynamic, single vineyard Chardonnay is named after the Gueules de Loup flowers (snapdragons) that flourish in its soils. This one-hectare site faces south/southeast and the soils are almost pure limestone, which lends the wine a cooler, crunchier, super mineral personality. The Goisots believe it is a terroir quite similar to the Vaillons 1er cru in Chablis and this really comes through in the pretty floral notes on offer. The vines here are over 40 years old and the fruit undergoes a long, slow pressing and the primary fermentation, malo and ageing are in barrel, on lees. More shimmering and compact, this has structure yet delicacy. Super floral and pretty, there’s a lifted nose of summer jasmine and sweet peach leading to a truly fine, racy palate with a splash of classy oak.
