At the heart of the Auxerrois region, the old wine-producing village of Saint-Bris-Le-Vineux is known for its spectacular underground quarries at Bailly
which once supplied stones for construction in Auxerre and Paris. Today it is the Mecca of Crémant de Bourgogne. The only Sauvignon grapes in Burgundy,
once called “épicier”, are harvested here. The wine is typical of its varietal and marks the transition between the wines from the Loire and those from Burgundy.
Its high quality was first recognized in 1974 when it was given the VDQS (Vin Délimité de Qualité Supérieure) appellation, and once again in 2002 when it was
awarded with AOC status.
