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.

  • Pouilly-Fumé Aoc 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Very aromatic with pleasant flower and fruit fragrances recalling the flower of the vine and the fruit of the Sauvignon. With mild citrus and minerality, on the palate it reveals a freshness and vivacity characteristic of grapes harvested at good maturity.

Creamy, but not heavy, and with exceptional length on the palate, this concentrated white can be savored... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    The nose displays sweet melon fruit with mineral and spice, with wild herbal notes as well. The flavors are concentrated and upfront with minerality joining the lively and fresh acid on the finish. This is a wine of focus and length. Read More
