Saint-Bris SauvignonSaint-Bris Sauvignon

Saint Bris is produced from Sauvignon grapes which give the wine its fruity nose of predominantly citrusy notes. The lightness of the palate makes this a refreshing wine.

Product type: French White wine, Sauvignon Blanc, Auxerrois, Burgundy, France (Dept. Yonne)

Vineyard location: On south-easterly facing slopes.

Vine population: Sauvignon Blanc – 6000 vine stocks per hectare.

Average age of vines: 5 years old.

Bottle closure: premium natural cork and capsule.

Wine-growing terroir: Clay and limestone marl formed in the Kimmeridgian age (late Jurassic) containing many small oyster fossils (Ostrea virgula).

Wine-making techniques: Cold fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures in order to extract the fruit. Malolactic fermentation proceeds at a slow pace giving the wine its finesse.

Tasting notes & ageing potential: Clear, light gold robe; attractive citrusy bouquet (grapefruit and mandarins); fresh on the attack and generous fruit on the palate. In order to enjoy the citrus aromas fully, our Saint Bris is best enjoyed within three years of harvesting.

Saint-Bris Sauvignon

Suggested accompaniments:

This lively-spirited wine is an ideal partner for oysters and other shellfish, while as an aperitif its mineral quality makes it an excellent appetite-whetter.  Excelling itself with goat's cheese, the wine's vivacity will also uplift all kinds of fish dishes, in particular smoked salmon.
Also a great choice for spicy curry or saffron-flavoured dishes.
