Brocard Saint Bris Sauvignon Blanc 2021
A tiny, solitary white producing appellation west of Chablis but east of the Loire, St. Bris is a bit of a peculiarity as it is technically part of Burgundy but produces non-Burgundian grapes. St-Bris produces highly aromatic whites with qualities of grapefruit, mandarin, peach, lychee, salinity and spice from both Sauvignons: Gris and Blanc. St-Bris wine is wonderful with shellfish, goat cheese and spicy curries.
Brocard Saint Bris captures some of the typical characteristics of Sauvignon, with a touch of grassiness and a strong aromatic presence of citrus oils. There’s also a clear resemblance to Chablis in the wine’s mineral pungency. Crisp and full of lively acidity, and carries enough substance to be relatively versatile on the table.
