Saint-Bris is a relatively small and relatively unknown recent appellation (created in 2001) in the Burgundy area covering the communes of Chitry, Irancy, Quenne, Saint-Bris-le-Vineux and Vincelottes.
It is notable because the vast majority of white wines in Burgundy are made from Chardonnay with some being made from Aligote, however this appellation permits the use of Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Gris. It is a sub-area of the Côte d'Auxerre and lies to the west of Chablis.
An example of an excellent wine made in this appellation is that made by young winemakers Alice et Olivier De Moor.
