Producer Note
Domaine Jean Goulley was formed in 1986 by Jean Goulley and is now run by his
granddaughter Maud. In January 2022, Maud took over from her father Philippe, who
was involved in the estate for nearly 40 years. The family owns 4.5 hectares in the
Premier Cru appellations, which are the heart and soul of the Domaine. They own
approximately 18 hectares in total. 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. The Goulley family believes the
organic farming methods permit an expressive and sustainable soil. Their wines are
mineral, pure and lively.
Vineyard
Fourchaume is a 1er Cru vineyard in Chablis. This vineyard has a similar exposure to the
Chablis Grand Cru vineyards which lie across the Fontenay Valley, to which
Fourchaume wines are often compared. The grapes come from a parcel which
includes some 60 year old vines. The double Guyot trained vines are planted at a
density of 5,700 vines per hectare and yield a maximum of 55 hectolitres per hectare.
The soils are made up of kimmeridgian, rich in clay and limestone with fossilised sea
shells; and are renowned for producing fine wines with mineral characteristics.
Domaine Jean Goulley’s vineyard is certified organic.
Winemaking
Vinified with minimal intervention, the grapes were carefully selected. Fermentation took
place with natural yeasts for two to three weeks at 21°C in temperature controlled
stainless steel vats, to showcase the characteristics of this impressive terroir. The wine
was matured for 18 months in stainless steel vats, of which it spent nine months on its
fine lees to gain texture, weight and complexity.
Tasting Note
Fourchaume is distinguished by its complexity, elegance, aromatic floral bouquet and
length – classic, flinty Chablis, textured and richly flavoured.
