So what?

"The Bersan family have been living in the village of Saint-Bris for many generations (since 1453, to be exact!). Their domaine sits in the Yonne department, about 10 km south of Auxerre and 15 km west of Chablis. The two current generations, Jean-Louis Bersan and his son Jean-Christophe, are now responsible for tending to the vines planted by Jean-Christophe’s grandfather and carrying on the family's winemaking traditions of respect for their unique appellations. Jean-Christophe handles the vine growing and winemaking responsibilities while his father is now more involved in the commercial aspects.

The family organically farms 20 hectares of vines between St-Bris (13 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc) and Irancy (7 hectares of Pinot Noir). These vines are planted on gentle slopes on Jurassic clay-limestone soils. The domaine has been growing organically for many years, and certified organic since 2011. 

Vines are 10-25 years old and the grapes undergo a 2-hour post-harvest skin contact. The wine is spontaneously fermented in stainless steel tanks for 30 days, then kept on its lees for another 4 months.

Very aromatic (grapefruit and flowers) with medium-body, citrus and mineral notes on the palate, and a crisp, mouthwatering finish. Works well as an aperitif and is a great partner for shellfish, light fish, cold salads and goat cheese." - Importer notes
