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.
