For this Saint-Bris, we should talk about Très Vieilles Vignes rather than Vieilles Vignes because Sauvignon, a specific grape variety of this Burgundy appellation, is over 100 years old in this place.
The terroir is the same as in the Serein valley, with Kimmeridgian and Portlandian limestones. The vinification is traditional, with temperature control and aging for a few months on the lees.
These old vines from Temps Perdus have panache and elegance. They combine the minerality of the terroir with the fruits of Sauvignon, with menthol notes depending on the year. On the palate, there is length and acidity. A wine to drink young, like after a cellar stay of 5 to 10 years.
