Biodynamic. 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 flesh as well). The vines are over 40 years old. The Goisots believe 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. The notes below describe the wine well: it’s a “brilliant” release bursting with potential. Don’t miss.

Reviews

“An easier width of aroma here – quite a finesse. In the mouth too; overtly mineral but with a textural cushion and faint sweetness that makes this already very accessible. Really mouth-watering. Made to age but already delicious wine of super length – bravo!”
Bill Nanson, Burgundy Report
“The 2019 Bourgogne Côtes d’Auxerre Gueules de Loup Blanc has a fragrant nose of orange pith, frangipane, pear and white Chinese tea, all very detailed and poised. The palate shows wonderful balance and real weight and density. Lightly spiced toward the finish, which feels composed and effortless, offering subtle pineapple and guava on the aftertaste. This is a brilliant wine from Goisot."
