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.

  • William Hill Sauvignon Blanc 2013

    Snoothrank:

    A newcomer from Gallo Wines, the William Hill Estates Sauvignon Blanc has a calming light Sea foam green hue. There are instant and startling aromas of citrus fruits and apricot on the nose. Powerfully sharp on the tongue with tastes of ripe red grapefruit, kiwi and cantaloupe. A slight effervescence tingles the tongue with a delightful danc... Read More

  • Clement et Florian Berthier Sancerre Vieilles Vignes Sur Silex 2013

    The Sancerre wine district is a small area which surrounds the Loire Valley in ... white wines made from the Sauvignon Blanc grape. The Clement et Florian Berthier Sancerre has the classic sharp Sauvignon Blanc initial aroma but little in the way of fragrance.

  • That silly cat does not yet understand the joy of a good cab.  I'm ... the 2012 Roblin Sancerre (Sauvignon Blanc).  You might notice that once again we have a wine list with inaccurate vintages, as it was supposed to be a 2012 and we received a 2013.  It was very nice though so I'm not complaining about anything except the price.  Funny thing ...
