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’. This noble grape is also successfully grown in Washington State and in New York on Long Island. In Canada, the variety is establishing a foothold in both the Niagara region of Ontario and British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley.

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 »

  • Chateau Chavrignac Bordeaux Vin de Bordeaux 2013


    Binny's 8/2015. Perfect example of a white Bordeaux. You just know what you are going to taste, and when you are in the zone the bottle empties quickly as if there was a hole in the punt. Read More

  • La Chablisienne Sauvignon de St.-Bris 2014


    For around $10 this is near the top of the QPR list. Plenty of citrus flavors, lemon, just a bit of white grapefruit, green melon, decent acidity and maybe even a hint of basil on the medium length finish. Read More

  • Merry Edwards Sauvignon Blanc Russian River Valley 2013


    Light gold in color, lemon cream and honeysuckle on the nose. Lemon chiffon, a hint of dried pineapple, green apple and under ripe peach. This has a somewhat creamy texture but crisp acidity and a very pleasant, clean, medium length finish. Extremely enjoyable! Read More

  • La Chablisienne Sauvignon de St.-Bris 2014


    Lemon grass is prominent in the bouquet and seems a bit more forward than the 2012. Almost Bordeaux in the slightly smoky and more dense aspects, this wine finishes with a touch of almond. A nice summer sipper with a bit of extra flair. 87 points and good value. Read More
