The wine is fermented using natural yeasts in stainless steel at low temperatures, followed by malolactic and aging on the lees in tank.

Enchanting and exotic aromatics without being excessive. Comparable to a fine Alsatian Pinot Gris, but with perhaps more finesse.

The 2015 Saint-Bris Corps de Garde has a wonderful, effervescent orange zest and mandarin-scented bouquet that exudes mineralité. Later there is a touch of wild heather. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity that cuts through the waxy-textured, slightly resinous, pithy fruit. This is very complex and very sappy in the mouth so that you can feel the saliva flowing immediately after the wine has been swallowed. It will be fascinating to see how this will age.
