Bailly Lapierre Saint-Bris Sauvignon Blanc 2022

Burgundy, FranceSaint-Bris is a small appellation in the north of Bourgogne where sauvignon is the AOC grape, not chardonnay. Wines from vineyards around Saint-Bris-le-Vineux planted with chardonnay or pinot noir are not included in the Saint-Bris AOC but are allowed the appellation CĂ´tes d'Auxerre. Given the herbal guava and grapefruit, it is obvious why chardonnay is not the main play, at least not yet. This is an enjoyable round, nutty, almost baked pear / apple style of sauvignon that slides down easily, with just enough acidity to keep it fresh. The fruit is ripe to the point of nearly being sweet, but the juicy, fresh palate quickly draws you into the glass. Ready to drink with fish tacos or spicy sushi dishes.Tasted: 06 March 2024Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
