Jean Goulley Petit Chablis Bio 2020

The vineyards of the Petit-Chablis appellation are located on both sides of the Serein River. This AOC was established in 1944. It is one of the jewels in the crown of the Chablis district, forming the "golden gateway" to the region as a whole in the northernmost department of Burgundy. A chardonnay wine through and through, "Petit" Chablis in fact has nothing "small" about it.
This wine is a brilliant pale gold, the color of rye straw, sometimes with green highlights. The aromas are of white flowers, mixed with citrus notes, over a mineral base (flint). Sometimes notes of peach and other white fruits are found. The palate is light and lively with nice acidity. A spicy attack soon culminates in a sympathetic round mouthfeel. Freshness, body and persistence come together in harmony. The wine is drunk young, ideally after two years: it belongs to spring.
  • About Jean Goulley

    In 1986, son Phillipe joined his father Jean Goulley and they created the Domaine Jean Goullley et fils, located in the heart of Chablis. The size of the vineyards is about 6 hectares. The estate owns some Petit Chablis, Chablis & Chablis Premier Cru. Bequeathed in part by Armand Tremblay to her daughter Simone, wife of Jean.

    The estate also consists of a beautiful plot in the middle of the famous hill of Premier Cru Fourchaume. In the mid-1960s, Jean was given a large plot, 2.5 hectares, in the middle of the hill of Premier Cru Montmains. The family now also has an important vineyard on the Premier Cru Mont de Milieu and several parcels of Chablis in La Chapelle Vaupelteigne. All of their wines have achieved considerable renown. The wines are pure in style, have wonderful minerality and stand like a house. Truly a pleasure to drink. Phillipe Goulley believes in young fresh wines in which you can find the terroir and environment. Most of his work is in maintaining the vines. Effortlessly and year-round, he works in the vineyards for crushing grape quality.
