Most white Burgundies are made from Chardonnay, but in Saint-Bris, Sauvignon Blanc reigns.
What You Need To Know
The same minerally, chalky soils that make Burgundy the world’s greatest region for Chardonnay also make it a terrific home for Sauvignon Blanc. What little there is of Burgundian Sauvignon Blanc grows in the tiny Saint-Bris district, which is itself part of Chablis, Burgundy’s northernmost outpost. Chablis’s cooler weather yields especially fresh, steely wines—a quality that’s clear in this brisk, unoaked white. It’s made by Simonnet-Febvre, who’ve been in Chablis for 173 years. For most of its history the firm specialized in sparkling wines, but it has branched out into still wines in recent years with impressive results.
