SAUVIGNON Blanc

The embodiment of aromatic power.

Sauvignon Blanc

Also known as Blanc Fumé, Fumé Blanc, the world-famous grape variety, Sauvignon Blanc gives wine a special, slightly spicy taste. In France, it is a traditional grape variety of the Loire and Gironde regions; in the world, a thriving and strong producer, it likes soils that are not very or only moderately fertile. Vinified alone or in a blend with Sémillon, it offers not only very aromatic dry white wines, but also rich sweet white wines. Thus, in France, alone, it gives birth to the famous dry "Sauvignon wines" such as Pouilly Fumé, the white wines of Sancerre, Ménetou Salon, Quincy and Reuilly, giving these Loire Valley wines an undeniable connection. It also spawned the no less famous Barsac, Monbazillac, and when again blended together with Sémillon and Muscadelle brings us Graves and the sweet and syrupy fine wines of the Sauternes region, modelled on the vintages of Château Yquem. Finally, in Languedoc, it is used as a dry varietal wine and shows a pronounced character. Dry white wines or sweet white wines, it proves to be generous with aromas of boxwood, blackcurrant buds (green fruits) and, depending on the terroir, white flowers, citrus fruits and very pronounced mineral notes of flint (Pouilly Fumé).

SWEET WINE

Often used in blends with Sémillon and Muscadelle (Monbazillac, Sauternes). Harvested when over-ripe, the " caramelized " grapes then deliver all their sweetness with plenty. Straw yellow colour with golden reflections, limpid robe. Freshness and liveliness. Sweet and syrupy (stronger in alcohol) they are smooth, racy and fragrant, developing languidly in the mouth. Sensual and distinguished, these wines have aromas of honey, apricot, dried citrus fruits, quince, exotic fruits and orange blossom. A real marvel!

MORE INFORMATION

Clearly, there is not just one style of Sauvignon, but several, influenced by the terroir, the climate, but also the winemaking process. A Sancerre with delicate boxwood scents is very different from another dry wine from the South-West that is more structured and heavier. The aromatic power of the Sauvignon and its freshness are however the theme of the different styles. Even though it is grown all over the world, Sauvignon from France is the most successful wine abroad and that's not about to stop.

Beware, however, not to start a meal with a sweet wine that will overwhelm your taste buds and prevent you from appreciating other, more nuanced flavours later on in the meal.

Also known according to region: Sauvignon Blanc, Blanc Fumé (Nièvre), Fumé Blanc, Sauternes, Ahumat (Béarn), Fié (Poitou and Burgundy), Sauvignon Gris, Mune Mahatsa...
