We have offered these wines in the past, but it's been a challenge to find a price that makes sense, and finally, we were able to deliver. Located 20 miles west of Chablis, the wines of Auxerre tend to be mineral-driven and mimic the appellation. Auxerre is surprisingly a much bigger village than Chablis, with many of its inhabitants relocating from Chablis in recent years. The soil here limestone-rich Kimmeridgian and Portlandian soil, giving the grapes and the finished wine a distinct minerality. Arnaud and Anne Goisot are the top producers in the region, fashioning wines that rival their neighbors in Chablis for much less. We were able to procure ten cases of her Bourgogne Cotes d'Auxerre, at closeout pricing, and we are happy to report it's absolutely stunning. By far the best white Burgundy value we have come across in quite a while because this area remains untapped for the most part with high-quality wines and low prices, similar to how Chablis was before the popularity. This wine has an outstanding minerality with aromas of white flowers, chalk, lime, and lemon with a touch of wild herbs. The palate is elegant and refined with incredible energy and tons of dry extract with lingering nuances of citrus, apple, and chalk. If you like clean, pure yet complex Chardonnay with little or no oak or are a fan of Chablis, this is a must, especially at this pricing.
