Sauvignon Blanc

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

    Wine review by Chris Carpita

  • Pouilly-Fumé Aoc 2007


    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. Drink this as an aperitif or pair it with fish (try a halibut steak in lemon butter), seaf... Read More

  • Vogelzang Happy Canyon Sauvignon Blanc Sauvignon Blanc Central Coast Santa Ynez Valley 2007

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

  • Babich Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Reserve 2007


    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
