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’.

  • Vincent Pinard "Nuance" Sancerre 2014

    Snoothrank:

    A note of oak comes through, though modest it's there and creates a more creamy/elegant SB with the sharpness twinged just a bit. Melon, citrus and lemongrass notes ride another mainstay - minerality. It's refreshing and will last for a couple of years yet. Paul 90 points Read More
