2018 Bailly Lapiere St Bris Sauvignon Blanc
Last summer David, the Grape Wrangler, was in Chablis cruising around when his host brought him to the caves of Bailly Lapiere, one of the major producers of Cremant in Burgundy.
The spectacular caves have supplied the stone for some of the greatest architectural works in Europe including the Pantheon, Notre Dame de Paris, Chartres Cathedral and more. The underground extraction probably began at the end of the medieval period and finally ceased around the beginning of the 20th century. The caves and their history are astonishing.

This cooperative of about 430 growers is best known for its Crémant de Bourgogne, but it also makes a lovely St-Bris. The 2018 took a silver medal at the 29th Concours des Vins du Grand Auxerrois. Exhibiting delicate nuances of white flowers, its allure is immediate, and it dazzles with its bright stony impact. Wonderful acidity, especially given the vintage, makes it a pleasure to drink now
