Sauvignon Blanc Wines
Sauvignon Blanc is a white wine grape variety original from Bordeaux, France, where it makes a good pair with Sémillon in Sancerre. Sauvignon Blanc wines are generally associated with Pouilly-Fumé where the wine reveals a very specific flint aroma that derives from the region's particular limestone soils. A classic Sauvignon Blanc has grassy aromas with hints of nettles, blackcurrant leaf, green apples and gooseberries. Besides France, the grape makes excellent wine in New Zealand and the USA.
