Goisot Sauvignon St Bris Exogyra Virgula 2010

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in London's Clerkenwell [www.theperfectcellar.com ] for £12. Saint-Bris is an AOC created in 2003 for white wines made from sauvignon blanc and/or sauvignon gris from around the village of Saint- Bris-la-Vineux between Auxerre and Chablis.It is the only Burgundy AOC for sauvignon blanc although there are only 100 hectares of vineyards. Chardonnay or pinot noir wines from the area come under the Cotes d'Auxerre and Irancy AOCs respectively. The Goisot family have been producing wines here for centuries.I started my bottle last night with my supper of baked mackerel and I did enjoy it. It is a crisp dry wine. As expected for a sauvignon blanc there is an elderflower and pear style fruit there but not a particularly intense fruit. I thought it was fairly mineral and not as good as the last sauvignon blanc I had the Isla Negra from Chile but it was a good accompaniment for my fish

The  family have traced their line of vignerons back to the 14th century in the Saint Bris area and the domaine is now run by Jean-Hugues and Ghislaine Goisot. They make pinot noirs, chardonnays,aligotes and sauvignon blancs under organic conditions. The cellars at their Corps de Gards premises go back to the 11th and 12th centuries
