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.
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 between 25 to 30 years old and are grown in Kimmeridgian soils, which are
rich in clay and limestone with fossilised sea-shells. There is also the presence of
Cailloux, large pebbles which help to promote ripening by absorbing the heat of the
day and then radiating it at night. The vines are planted to a density of 5,700 vines
per hectare and yields are kept to a maximum of 60hl/ha. 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.
The grapes were harvested at optimum maturity and were fermented in temperature
controlled vats using organic principles. The wine was left on its lees to impart more
texture and body. Oak was not used during the vinification, to retain the purity of fruit
and to let the characteristics of this Chablis terroir shine through. A restricted use of
sulphur was used during the vinification and the wine was lightly filtered, prior to
Refreshingly clean with a crisp, mineral and dry finish. The Special Cuvée is made in
a fuller style with longer ageing on the lees to give weight... nothing Petit about this
