"Domaine Goisot's place in the wine world is beatifully summed up by Burghound's Allen Meadows: "No one but no one delivers more quality for the price than Goisot. The quality is flat out amazing, particulalry given the modest appellations with which he works". In truth, Domaine Goisot should be kwown as a fine Chablis estate, but history has not been particularly kind to the region, as Saint Bris was removed from the Chablis appellation after phylloxera paralyzed the area in the late nineteenth century. Prior to this, Saint Bris was part of Chablis, which seems quite logical, given that it shares the same base of profound Kimmeridgian limestone and the same northerly climate as its neighbor a few kilometers to the east. But now Saint Bris is officially a sub-region of the Côte d’Auxerre, which is only officially entitled to Bourgogne status. However, one of the delightful side effects of the switch is that the Goisots, unlike their Chablisien brthren, are allowed to grow Sauvignon Blanc and Aligoté in additiob to Chardonnay. In this way, Saint Bris is like a tiny combination of Chavignol and Chablis in one sleepy village. " -Supplier notes
