Saint-Bris La Préférée

Bright, limpid golden color. Intense, fresh, mineral nose with citrus (grapefruit, tangerine) and exotic fruit (lychee) aromas. Fine balance on the palate between the exuberant perfume of stone fruit, citrus (lemon) and green fruit (pear, apple) and the minerality typical of the terroir.

    Detailed description

    In the heart of the Auxerrois vineyards and on the banks of the Yonne, Saint-Bris-le-Vineux, an old stone village, rests on extraordinary medieval cellars, the most astonishing in Burgundy: they run under the whole country. Added to this are the old Bailly quarries (the stone of the Pantheon in Paris), 3.5 hectares of cellars 60 meters underground!
    Saint-Bris is well worth the detour.

    It's a white Sauvignon.

    Often light gold, brilliant. This is a stone's throw from Auxerre.
    Saint-Bris reveals notes of citrus (grapefruit, tangerine), peach and crushed blackcurrant leaves.

    Occasionally accompanied by exotic nuances (lychee), this complexity leads to a full, floral and tender fruitiness tinged with a spicy, iodized finish.

    With age, it develops aromas of jam and candied fruit.
    Enjoy in its youth or after a few years.
