Domaine Jean Goulley Petit Chablis 2020

Wet stone, mineral nose through to a textured
mouthwatering palate with apricot hints and a cleansing,

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
Maud and her family believe in the ethos of organic farming along with that of minimal
intervention; all of their vineyards have been farmed organically since 1991. 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. At Domaine
Jean Goulley, they believe in highlighting terroir and produce their 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.
