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 »

Sauvignon Blanc on Snooth

  • L'Ecole No. 41 Semillon 2012

    Snoothrank:

    The 2012 Semillon (with 15% Sauvignon Blanc) from the esteemed L'Ecole No. 41 is quite a treat: the colour is lightly golden, and the nose an invigorating, spicy, nose-twitching, gooseberry. Entry is quite luscious and mature, with more white berry confit, musk and white pepper. Delicious. Much like Hunter Valley (NSW, Australia), only somewh... Read More

Brown,consists of 70% sauvignon blanc and 30% semillon and was aged in oak barrels for 9 months I started the bottle last night with my supper of smoked salmon and salad.

  • Cheval Quancard Cuvee Hortense Prestige 2018

    Snoothrank:

    You see: you do not have to pay an arm and a leg to drink good white Bordeaux; this wine proves the rule... a pale yellow in the glass with an electrifyingly spicy gooseberry nose. So far so good... and entry does not disappoint: smooth white fruit such as kiwi, lychee and gooseberry on the palate, with a clean finish. An excellent wine for th... Read More

  • Chateau Rahoul Blanc 2016

    Snoothrank:

    The Chateau Rahoul Blanc 2016 is delicious; it presents as pale yellow in the glass, and the nose is of newly mown grass and (predominantly) lemon oil. The entry is spicy (ginger and pepper), with lemon and tropical fruit. A strong, peppery, lingering finish. Excellent value, and shows the genius of the Dourthe family. 89. Read More

  • La Frenz Wits End Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2018

    Snoothrank:

    The La Frenz SB is very light yellow colour with lime, lemon peel and fresh ... grass on the nose... very Sauvignon Blanc and variety sound. It tastes much like an Entre-deux-Mers in the same price range, with a bit more purity on the palate. Palate cleansing and pleasant on the finish. Well done. 8 Read More

  • Le Vieux Pin Sauvignon Blanc 2018

    Snoothrank:

    A tongue-tingling, alarm clock for the palate is this electric Sauvignon Blanc from Le Vieux Pin. Gooseberry, lime and grass effuse from the glass which shows pale yellow. Entry is quite acidic - showing good possibility for a couple of years aging, although for certain fare (we had vegetable stir-fry), perfect now. A bit expensive, but a cut a... Read More

  • Oxford Landing SB (Marlborough NZ) was my introduction to this grape. Oxford Landing is a reasonable price for a surprisingly low % and an acceptable intro to this grape. However.... My real introduction was with Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough. Revelation; nice sharp taste (not too sharp), reliable 'vintage' (I'm a newbie so I don't c...

  • After tasting the following Sauvignon Blanc varietals from the Marlborough regions of New Zealand "Brancott and Matua", I won't even buy any Sauvignon Blanc varietals from any where else in the world.

  • My love fo Sauv. Blanc is a relatively new one. I discovered the wonders of this strain while representing New Zealand's Villa Maria winery at Israel's largest wine exhibit - "Sommelier", which took place in November '10.
