Maison Goichot, Pouilly-Fuissé

Description
Maison Goichot, Pouilly-Fuissé - This elegant and charming white wine has a colour that ranges from pale to deep gold, flecked with green. The bouquet consists of several families of aromas: mineral notes (flint), almond and hazelnut, citrus notes (lemon, grapefruit and pineapple), white fruit (peaches), ferns, acacia, breadcrumbs, buttered brioche and honey. The texture is luscious and, thanks in part to the wine's natural richness, full-bodied. It is naturally delicate and distinguished.

About Maison Goichot
Founded in 1947 near Meursault, Maison André Goichot is one of the most renowned negociants in Burgundy. Based in Beaune since 2000, as one of the last family businesses, 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 complemented our estate with the 25-hectare Château du Cray in Buxy near Mercurey. In addition, the development of our negociant activity has allowed us to build several strong partnerships in the most renowned Burgundy appellations.

Origin and soil
The appellation of origin, established in 1936, covers the four villages of Solutré-Pouilly, Fuissé, Vergisson and Chaintré. The Bajocien slopes of Solutré and Vergisson lie on a subsoil of fossil limestone identical to those in the north of the Côte-d'Or and owe their dramatic profile to the presence of hard fossil corals that have resisted erosion. The vines are planted on the slopes and at the foot of these two hills on clay-limestone soils of Jurassic origin mixed with gravel from the slope and, in one place, schist. The slopes are incised by small steep streams that give the slopes an eastern or south-eastern exposure. Altitudes: 200 to 300 metres.
