The top 10 white wines for spring
Clotilde Davenne Sauvignon Saint-Bris 12.5%vol, France.
A curiosity and a tasty one, too: a sauvignon blanc from chardonnay country. The village of Saint-Bris-le-Vineaux is the only appellation in Chablis to permit the variety and Clotilde Davenne has fashioned a delightfully crisp, lean and minerally example. It cries out for a plate of seafood.

Saint-Bris Clotilde DAVENNE Savage Selection
Saint-Bris Sauvignon is the only patch of sauvignon in a sea of chardonnay in nothern burgundy. It doesn’t alaways deliver but this one is a plum : vibrant, smoky and concentrated, with a brillant punchy verdant finish. Great with seafood.
My wines speak of their land gracefully across the fruit of each grape variety.
