Wet stone, mineral nose through to a dry

Producer Note
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 domain 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.


Vintage
2018 is being hailed as an excellent vintage in Burgundy, with Chablis being no
exception. The summer saw a long, hot growing period which ensured the vineyards
remained healthy. The fruit is concentrated in varietal characteristics and the
resulting wines are slightly lower in acidity.


Vineyard
Philippe Goulley believes in the ethos of organic farming along with that of minimal
intervention; all of his vineyards are farmed organically. The vineyard is situated on
the left bank of the River Sereine, where the vines are planted with an easterly
orientation at an average altitude of 210 metres. 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 seashells. 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 60 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.


Winemaking
The grapes were harvested at optimum maturity and were fermented in temperature
controlled stainless steel vats using organic principles and natural yeasts. The wine
was left on its lees to impart more texture and body. Made in an unoaked style, to
retain the purity of fruit and to let the characteristics of the terroir shine through. A
restricted use of sulphur was used during the vinification and the wine was lightly
filtered, prior to bottling.


Tasting Note
A refreshing and clean Petit Chablis with lemony notes on the crisp, mineral and dry
palate, through to a mouthwatering finish. This is made in a fuller style with longer
ageing on the lees to give weight... nothing 'petit' about this wine!
