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
Mont de Milieu is a 1er Cru vineyard site located on the eastern banks of the Serein
River and produces age-worthy wines from this exceptional terroir. The vines are
planted in Kimmeridgian soils, which are rich in clay and limestone with fossilised
seashells. Domaine Goulley’s old Chardonnay vines were planted in 1968 and were
converted to organic status in 2005, since then it has been cultivated without the use of
chemical treatments. The vineyard has a south to southwestern exposure and sits at
150 to 190 metres elevation which encourages good diurnal temperature differences,
encouraging the grapes to accumulate good fruit concentration while retaining
refreshing natural acidity from the cooler nights.
Winemaking
The grapes were harvested at optimum maturity and were fermented with natural
yeasts at controlled temperatures. During fermentation the temperature was
maintained at a maximum of 21°C; then it was reduced to between 18 to 20°C during
malolactic conversion. The wine was matured for 18 months in stainless steel vats at
14°C, of which the first nine were on the fine lees to impart complexity and texture. It
was made without oak influence to retain the purity of fruit and to let the characteristics
of the Premier Cru Mont de Mileu terroir shine through.
