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.
2015 experienced a very warm, dry summer, which created good conditions for the
early part of the growth cycle. However, Chablis was affected by hail in early
September, damaging many vineyards and significantly lowering yields. The timing
of the harvest was particularly crucial in 2015. The quality of the wine was not
affected due to meticulous sorting in the vineyard and cellar and the smaller
quantity of wines made this vintage are of excellent quality, with concentrated
flavours and beautiful balance.
Montmains is a Premier Cru vineyard in Chablis, which stretches along an exposed
hillside to the south west of the town of Chablis itself. It is renowned for producing
fresh, elegant wines with good minerality. 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 that have an average age of 45
years and are grown in Kimmeridgian soils, which are rich in clay and limestone with
fossilised sea-shells. The vines are planted to a density of 5,700 vines per hectare and
yields are kept to a maximum of 55 hectolitres per hectare. 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 made in an unoaked style to
retain the purity of fruit and to let the characteristics of the Premier Cru Montmains
terroir shine through. A restricted use of sulphur was used during the vinification and
the wine was lightly filtered, prior to bottling.
