2009 Domaine Anne & Arnaud Goisot Bourgogne Côtes d'Auxerre Pinot Noir

SKU #1071898

100% Pinot Noir, and completely unoaked, this is the epitome of a refreshing, bright red from this northerly region adjacent to Chablis (one of the northern most sites for red wine in the world!). It is charming, vivacious and open, with nice fruit. At the finish it has a bit of structure and some tannins, but its overall personality is charming and forward, but not lacking structure and density, in this terrific vintage. Only K&L's Direct Import makes this price possible! (Keith Wollenberg, K&L Burgundy Buyer)

One of the stand outs from our last Burgundy tasting, this tasty little Pinot is bright, fresh, and balanced with perfectly ripe cherry and berry fruit. Keith does a wonderful job finding these wines to bring in, and coming from the very solid 09 vintage, this wine is as good if not better than any similarly priced Pinot.

I challenge you to find a more solid Pinot Noir from anywhere in the world at this price. Saying it's "varietally correct" seems to take all of the poetry out of this pretty little bargain, but it is. There's tangy blueberry, cranberry and strawberry fruit on the nose and palate, plenty of acid lift and soft tannins. A complete wine for a ridiculously low price.

Light, bright, and refreshing, this 100% Pinot Noir is pure charm in a bottle. Aromas of berries and earth greet the nose, and the palate is lively but not austere, showing just-ripe open-knit fruit and earth spice accents. While sometimes these wines can be quite high in tannin and acid, 2009 witnessed excellent growing conditions and thus there is mid-palate weight to balance the acidity and mild tannic grip at the finish. You can enjoy this with a variety of foods (coq au vin or bœuf bourguignon are recommended) or hold up to 10 years end enjoy mature with gamier dishes -- pheasant, wild duck, rabbit -- or with a creamy brie cheese.

The Goisot Burgogne is back! I love the Goisot wines for their purity, and at such a great price their Côte d’Auxerre Pinot is a wine you should buy by the case. It opens up as soon as the cork is pulled. The nose is fragrant with cherry and strawberry aromas, and the palate is filled with beautiful cherry fruit. It has an elegant mouthfeel and finishes with some soft tannins. This is a lovely Pinot Noir for only $13!

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Burgundy

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
