Varietal Notes

Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most popular white grapes in the world, second only to Chardonnay. Without question, Sancerre is the most prestigious region for this grape due to the soil, climate, and history of the region. Naturally high in pyrazines, Sauvignon Blanc tends to exhibit herbaceous and green notes ranging from fresh cut grass to jalapenos and gooseberry. High in natural acidity the tart citrus fruits are also a major component to the wines flavor, especially when the grapes are grown in a cool climate like Sancerre.
