Sauvignon de Saint-Bris, which encircles the city of Saint-Bris-le-Vineux, southwest of Chablis, became an appellation contrôlée this year. Its specialty is crisp, fresh Sauvignon Blanc, a complete contrast to the Chardonnay grown throughout the rest of Burgundy. Jean-Marc Brocard, better known for his Chablis, makes this crisp, fresh and lively wine, with flavors of white currants.
