Episode 1: Sauvignon Blanc in Burgundy

Follow winemaker Pierre Gouttenoire on the discovery of the Sauvignon Blanc grape in an unusual place in France, Burgundy.

Sauvignon Blanc is one of the noble French grapes that is usually associated with the Loire valley and Bordeaux where it often blends with Semillon. But did you know that you can actually find Sauvignon Blanc in Burgundy, close to Chablis. In fact, the small Saint-Bris AOC appellation gives that typical flinty notes that it’s famous for in its well-known Chardonnay counterpart. See the 2-minute “Gone with the Grape…” video here.

I call myself Rebecca Wine on social media mainly because my name is so long, and wine synthesizes who I am. Since the late 90'ies, my world has revolved around wine in every moment. From what I do for a living to who I ended up marrying. From the outside, I bet it seems a little boring to have just one obsession, but it's so strong that there's no room for anything else (except of course my babies).
