Lying alongside the river Yonne in the heart of the Auxerrois vineyard district, Saint-Bris-le-Vineux is an old stone-built village beneath which are extraordinary medieval cellars.
The Saint-Bris, this white wine made next door to Auxerre from the Sauvignon grape, is often the colour of pale straw or light gold. Aromas are of citrus fruits (grapefruit, mandarin orange), peach, and crushed blackcurrant leaves with
sometimes exotic scents (lychee). This complexity introduces a fruit which is full, flowery and tender, with a hint of salt and spice in the finish. Jammy and preserved-fruit aromas will appear as the wine ages. This is a wine that can
be either enjoyed young or after having aged a few years.
