Sauvignon Blanc

(aka. Blanc Fume, Fume Blanc, Savagnin Musque)

Sauvignon Blanc is widely grown in California -- at over 15,000 acres, it’s now the third most planted variety -- and often assumes the moniker ‘Fume Blanc’. This popular synonym, credited to Napa’s Robert Mondavi, derives from the grape’s historic home of Pouilly in France’s Upper Loire Valley, where Sauvignon Blanc is the dominant varietal and goes locally by the name of ‘Blanc Fumé’.

When treated with respect and afforded suitable growing conditions, it is one of the wine world’s darlings. Dry wines made from this grape are characterized by steely, racy acidity, green, gooseberry fruit, asparagus and a grassy, herbaceous character. It is rarely oaked, except in California, where it has often been subjected to Read more »

  • To press or not to press? That is NOT the question. Rarely does anything in ... In the case of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, this is a critical part of the style. By completely blanketing the press itself and the press pan with dry ice (CO2) the juice can be kept in a reductive state (non-oxidative). This, in turn preserves the high toned thiol... Read More

Very good qpr, but not only that, more-than-decent wines. Just don't expect supermarkets or any old wine shop or any old discount online site to be serving you the best. They're pushing whatever the... Read More

  • Terre de Fumee Coteaux du Giennois 2011

    Snoothrank:

    It is rare to see this wine in BC - especially one from the 2011 vintage. But the well-known and respected Henri Bourgeois has produced an inexpensive, nicely aged Coteaux du Giennois with a solid, musky quince, lemon and mown grass nose and more musk and smoke on the palate (hence the wine's proprietary name). Solid value. 87 points. Read More
