Description:

The vineyards of the Petit Chablis appellation lie on either side of the river Serein. This AOC was instituted in 1944. It is one of the jewels in the crown of the Chablis region which forms the “golden gate” to Bourgogne. A Chardonnay wine through and through, Petit Chablis has, in fact, nothing “little” about it.

These carefully selected terroirs occupy the higher portions of the winegrowing slopes or the edge of the plateau. The soils are brown and derived from hard limestones, with patches of sandy silts. Altitudes: mostly between 230 and 280 metres, with various exposures

This wine is a brilliant pale gold, the colour of rye-straw, sometimes flecked with green. Its aromas are of white flowers (may, acacia) mixed with citrus notes (lemon, grapefruit) over a mineral base (gun-flint). Notes of peach and other white-fleshed fruits are sometimes encountered. The mouth is light and lively with well-balanced acidity. A touch of saltiness (iodine) is characteristic. Freshness, body and persistence come together to form a harmonious whole. The wine is drunk young, ideally within 3 years.

Founded in 1947 near Meursault, Maison André Goichot is one of the most renowned negociant in Burgundy. Implanted in Beaune since 2000, as one of the last family company, the story of the House continues with the 3rd generation. Owner of Château de la Guiche since 1979 in Montagny, the estate grows in 2015 through Domaine les Guignottes with 10 hectares of Montagny, Montagny 1er Cru and Santenay. In 2017 we completed our estate with the 25 hectares of Château du Cray in Mercurey. In addition, the development of our negociant activity allowed us to build several strong partnerships in the most renowned burgundy appellations.
