Biodynamic. This Bibendum favourite is made from Fié Gris (aka Sauvignon Gris). Fié Gris used to be a much more commonly planted variety around Auxerre, but its fickle, low-yielding nature (on average it yields 35-40% less than Sauvignon Blanc) sealed its fate. Luckily for us, the Goisots have persevered and today, their old vines of Fié Gris flourish in the rich, red-brown clay and limestone soils of the Côte de la Canne, Cornevin and Moury vineyards.


Unlike the Sauvignon Blanc wines, this bottling was partly fermented and raised in old 500-litre barrels. It’s always one of Burgundy’s leftfield gems, and Goisot has nailed this release.

Reviews

“The 2018 Saint-Bris Corps de Garde has some of the most expressive and open aromatics of Goisot’s 2018s, featuring white peach, grapefruit, kiwi fruit and light fumé scents. The palate is beautifully balanced, with a waxy texture, expressing the Sauvignon Gris to full effect on its stem ginger and rhubarb-tinged finish. Seductive, but I would love to revisit it with bottle age.”
