Domaine Jean Goulley was formed in 1986 by Jean Goulley and is now run by his
son Philippe. The family own 4.5 hectares in the Premier Cru districts which are the
heart and soul of the domaine. They own approximately 18 hectares in total and
produce around 11,000 cases a year. In 1991 the domaine became one of the very
first certified organic producers in Chablis. All of the vineyards are farmed organically
and the wines are produced with restricted use of sulphur. Philippe believes the
organic farming methods permit an expressive and sustainable soil. Their wines are
mineral, pure and lively.
2016 was an extremely difficult vintage in Chablis with frosts and hail damaging
many hectares of vineyard, resulting in significantly reduced yields. Fine weather in
September helped to rescue this vintage. The fruit that remained was good quality,

Philippe Goulley believes in the ethos of organic farming along with that of minimal
intervention; all of his vineyards are farmed organically. The Double Guyot trained
vines are grown in Kimmeridgian soils which are rich in clay and limestone, with
fossilised sea-shells. The yields are kept to a maximum of 60 hectolitres per hectare.
The grapes were harvested at optimum maturity and were fermented in temperature
controlled vats using organic principles. Philippe believes in highlighting terroir and
he produces his wines in an unoaked style, allowing them to reveal the purity,
minerality and vitality of the soil. A restricted use of sulphur was used during the
vinification and the wine was lightly filtered, prior to bottling.

A wonderful pairing for fresh shellfish, especially oysters; prawns with garlic butter,
charcuterie and spring vegetable risottos.
