Saint-Bris 2018 - Domaine des Malandes

 

Incredible white wine from Saint Bris, perfect atypicality of Northern Burgundy: wine from not the famous Chardonnay grape, but sauvignon!

A mixture of Burgundy's winemaking tradition and the grape variety used in other regions (Loire for example), this wine brings very expressive aromas and a beautiful intensity.

The aromas range from blackcurrant bud to broom to spring undergrowth. The lychee can also be revealed on a recent vintage Saint Bris.

In the mouth a lively but very well balanced wine, which will offer aromas of fruit with white flesh and lemon.

VIN SERVICE TEMPERATURE: 11 to 14 degrees

Saint Bris

Wine Characteristics

This white wine made next door to Auxerre from the Sauvignon grape is often the colour of pale straw or light gold. Aromas are of citrus fruits (grapefruit, mandarin orange), peach, and crushed blackcurrant leaves with sometimes exotic scents (lychee). This complexity introduces a fruit which is full, flowery and tender, with a hint of salt and spice in the finish. Jammy and preserved-fruit aromas will appear as the wine ages. This is a wine that can be either enjoyed young or after having aged a few years.

Wine Steward’s Tip

Something of an oddity in Bourgogne, the Sauvignon grape here yields a wine remarkable for its splendid aromatic range, which makes it a frisky partner for oysters and crustaceans. Taken as a pre-dinner drink, it stimulates the taste-buds. It is magisterial with goat cheeses, and its vivacity enlivens all fish dishes and particularly Scandinavian-style recipes. It also harmonizes very well with highly-spiced curries or saffron-flavoured dishes.
Serving temperatures: 8 to 10°C as aperitif,10 to 11°C with food.
 

Situation

Lying alongside the river Yonne in the heart of the Auxerrois region, Saint-Bris-le-Vineux is an old stone-built village beneath which are extraordinary medieval cellars, running everywhere, the most astonishing examples of their kind in Bourgogne. They cover 3.5 ha, 60 metres underground. The quarries at nearby Bailly supplied the building stone for the Pantheon in Paris. Saint-Bris is definitely worth a visit.

Terroirs

The soils are derived from various Jurassic limestones ranging from Portlandian to Kimmeridgian. Alluvial soils and fossiliferous Lower Kimmeridgian limestone astartes are found alongside the river and at the foot of the marlylimestone slopes. The best situated plots are on the open hillside facing north, so maturation takes place under ideal conditions which favour the wine’s fruitcontent.
