We love exceptions to rules. St. Bris is the one village in Burgundy where they plant Sauvignon Blanc! It exudes textbook Sauvignon Blanc aromatics with quintessential Burgundian minerality. The perfect wine to satisfy the Sauvignon Blanc lovers and the Burgundy lovers in your life!
Made from organically farmed, 60 year old vines, the grapes see a 22 day maceration, fermenting in chestnut barrels and then 24 months of aging. All of this yields complexity, to say the least. Aromatics of tart tropical fruit leap out of the glass while salinity and minerality hold down the structure. A masterpiece!
François and Jean-Marie Cherrier of Cherrier Frères the third generation to make wine at their family domaine, which bears their father Pierre’s name. Cherrier Frères is their other label. Their Sancerre Blanc, called “Les Renarderies,” incorporates Sauvignon Blanc grown in three different soil types.
