Producer Note
Saint Bris le Vineux is a small village in the north-western part of Burgundy located 16
km from Chablis and eight kilometres from Auxerre. Although Chardonnay is
renowned as the main white grape variety grown in Burgundy, uniquely St Bris is the
only village in Burgundy where elegant and floral Sauvignon Blanc wines are
produced. It is here, in Saint Bris Le Vineux that in 1987 owner and winemaker Erick
Lavallée established Domaine Grand Roche. He has recently been joined by his
children Caroline and Clement. The property comprises 22 hectares of vineyard
spread between Chablis and Auxerre and produces a small quantity of Saint Bris as
well as clean and fresh Chablis, blended from different parcels on the private estate
for complexity and balance.


Vintage
2019 is being hailed as an excellent vintage in Burgundy, with Chablis being no
exception. The summer saw a long, hot growing period which ensured the vineyards
remained healthy. The fruit is concentrated in varietal characteristics with excellent
fruit typicity. Domaine Grand Roche harvested exceptional yield, despite the lack of
rain during the summer.


Vineyard
Chablis is internationally renowned for the combination of the Chardonnay grape
and the Kimmeridgian soils in which they are cultivated. These estate vineyards are
no exception, the limestone soils are said to impart the notorious ‘mineral’
characteristics to the final wine. The vineyard is managed according to sustainable
growing practices, which are observed and supported at each stage of the vine's
growth. These techniques limit the risk of pollution and allow for the preservation of
the soil and terroir.


Winemaking
The grapes were destemmed and gently pressed in a pneumatic press, which
delicately extracted the juice without the herbaceous aromas of the stalks. After
settling, fermentation started spontaneously with indigenous yeasts taking place in
stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of 16 to 18°C. These techniques
guarantee the typical expression of the terroir and natural aromas of the
Chardonnay variety. Following racking, the wine was rested on its fine lees for a
minimum of six months prior to being pink-earth filtered and bottled.


Tasting Note
Fresh, bright aromas of citrus fruit and floral notes are elegantly enveloped in subtle,
smoky mineral notes. Crisp on the palate, with refreshing, vibrant white fruits
complemented by a hint of butter, good structure through to a dry, mouthwatering
finish.
