On the left bank of the Serein, 15 kilometers south-east of Chablis, in the heart of the Auxerrois region, the old wine-producing village of Saint-Bris-Le-Vineux is known for its spectacular underground quarries, which were exploited for the construction of Auxerre and Paris. The only Sauvignon de Bourgogne, formerly called "épicier", is also harvested here. Typical wine of its grape variety, forming a transition between the Loire and Burgundy, it shows real qualities that have earned it the title of VDQS (Vin Délimité de Qualité Supérieure) in 1974, then rightly AOC in 2002.
The Loire area and Burgundy meet on this exceptional land whose stones were used to build the Pantheon in Paris.
Unique in the region, the clay-limestone soils of the famous Kimmeridgien are home to Sauvignon vines.
