Bourgogne Côtes D’Auxerre Gueules de Loup 2018, Domaine Jean-Hugues et Guilhem Goisot
Region: Côtes d’Auxerre, Burgundy
Production: Organic & biodynamic certified, hand-harvested, natural yeasts, low sulphur
Chiselled and linear this is the most taut and Chablis-esq of the single vineyard Chardonnay’s from Goisot. Incredible intensity and energy. Brilliant.
“The 2018 Bourgogne-Côtes d’Auxerre Gueules de Loup comes from vines on Portlandian limestone. Aged in 20% new oak, it has a detailed bouquet of Golden Delicious apple, white tea and light almond; subtle tropical scents become more prominent with time. The taut, fresh palate is very well balanced with a fine degree of acidity, welcome spiciness and a little grilled walnut and smoke emerging toward the finish. Superb.” 92 pts
