    Winemaker Notes

    Very aromatic (grapefruit and flowers) with medium-body, citrus and mineral notes on the palate, and a crisp, mouthwatering finish.

    Works well as an aperitif and is a great partner for shellfish, light fish, cold salads and goat cheese.

    Domaine Bersan, France - Other regions
    The Bersan family have been living in Saint-Bris for many generations. Jean-Louis and his son Jean-Christophe own 20 hectares of vines there. They convert all of their fruit into wine at their winery, located just outside the village center.

    Jean-Christophe Bersan pulls some Sauvignon from tank. The Bersans also make a red wine from the neighboring village Irancy. They are currently in conversion to organic viticulture, and will be certified in 2011.

    Average yields for their Saint Brie Sauvignon Blanc is around 55 hectoliters per hectare, or 3.5 tons per acre. The wine is fermented and aged in stainless-steel tanks, where about 33% of the wine passes its malolactic fermentation.

    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. It is wonderful with shellfish, goat cheese and spicy curries.

    Sauvignon Blanc

    A crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character, Sauvignon blanc is responsible for a vast array of wine styles. However, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. The variety is of French provenance, and is most important in Bordeaux and the Loire Valley. It also shines in New Zealand, California, Australia and parts of northeastern Italy. Chile and South Africa are excellent sources of high-quality, value-priced Sauvignon blanc.

    In the Glass

    From its homeland In Bordeaux, winemakers prefer to blend it with Sémillon to produce a softer, richer style. In the Loire Valley, it expresses citrus, flint and smoky flavors, especially from in Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé. Marlborough, New Zealand often produces a pungent and racy version, reminiscent of cut grass, gooseberry and grapefruit. California's style is fruit-driven, in either a soft and oak-aged or snappy and fresh version.

    Perfect Pairings

    The freshness of Sauvignon blanc’s flavor lends it to a range of light, summery dishes including salad, seafood and mild Asian cuisine. Sauvignon Blanc settles in comfortably at the table with notoriously difficult foods like artichokes or asparagus. When combined with Sémillon (and perhaps some oak), it matches well with complex seafood and chicken dishes.

    Sommelier Secret

    Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
