Product Description

"If you ever wondered what Sauvignon blanc might taste like if grown on the limestone soils of Burgundy and grown by a great biodynamic grower, here's your answer. St Bris is Burgundy's only AOC for Sauvignon blanc (and the rare Sauvignon Gris). In the chalky soils of the Chablis/Yonne area, Sauvignon produces something altogether different to the nearby appellations of Pouilly and Sancerre. In general terms these wines are packed with more fruit density and have an invigorating energy and freshness. Exogyra Virgula is the name of the comma-shaped fossilised oyster that is so abundant in the soil in this part of the world and reminds us that these soils once sat on the bottom of the ocean. This wine hails from 4.38ha of north-facing slopes of Cornevin, Côte de la Canne and La Roncie, which are littered with such fossils." Winemaker's Note

"The Goisot 2012 Saint-Bris Exogyra Virgula exhibits aromatics I associate with Kimmeridgian underpinnings: chalk dust, struck flint, brine, lemon and its pips, along with sage, thyme and nettle. There is an austere combination of firmness and fullness here and a persistent if rather bitter finish, happily significantly assuaged by saliva-inducing salinity and the juices of fresh lemon and grapefruit."

If you ever wonder what Sauvignon blanc might taste like if grown on the limestone soils of Burgundy and grown by a great biodynamic grower, here's your answer. St Bris is Burgundy's only AOC for Sauvignon blanc (and the rare Sauvignon Gris). In the chalky soils of the Chablis/Yonne area, Sauvignon produces something altogether different to the nearby appellations of Pouilly and Sancerre.

This wine hails from 4.38ha of north-facing slopes littered with such fossils. It's not ever day that a Sauvignon blanc gets an "Outstanding" rating from Allen Meadows. Bravo!

"Comments: Outstanding, top value. This is also unmistakably sauvignon blanc in character with a highly attractive sense of freshness that carries over to the lively medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent cut and detail. There is a trace of youthful bitterness on the finale but I suspect that it will dissipate in due course and this should drink well almost immediately yet benefit from a year or two of bottle age."
