Biodynamic. Goisot produces two wines from 100% Sauvignon Blanc: the Exogyra Virgula and this wine, drawn from a single parcel of 1.3-hectares on Barrois limestone (a Portlandian-era limestone with lots of pebbles and silty clay). This is the richer, more hedonistic of the two wines. As with the Aligoté, you find a far fleshier texture than you may expect of this varietal, accompanied by a spicy mineral core and intense saline and mineral notes.
While Goisot’s Saint-Bris wines share some attributes with the best of Sancerre, the wines tend to offer a more overt citrussy, pithy profile—something this layered, chalky and peppery Burgundy has in spades. Vinified in tank only and raised on its fine lees, it’s one of those pulpy yet racy whites that leaves you crying out for a plate of fresh seafood.
