Gueules de Loup is arguably the most picturesque vineyard of the Côtes d’Auxerre and is named after the beautiful flowers (snapdragons) that flourish in its soils. This one-hectare site faces south/southeast, and the soils are almost pure limestone, which lends this cuvée its wonderful, mineral backbone (although it lacks nothing for opulence as well). The vines are over 40 years old. The Goisots believe that this is a terroir quite similar to the 1er Cru Vaillons in Chablis but there is more ‘white Burgundy’ personality here than we have ever seen from Vaillons. Maturation is all in barrels, on lees.
