Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon blanc is a green-skinned grape variety which originates from the Bordeaux region of France. The grape gets its name from the French word sauvage (wild) and blanc (white) due to its early origins as an indigenous grape in South West France. It is now planted in many of the world's wine regions, producing a crisp, dry, and refreshing white varietal wine.

Wines from the Sauvignon Blanc grape:

  • Bergerac Sec: Domaine de l'Ancienne Cure 2012

    Bergerac Sec: Domaine de l'Ancienne Cure 2012

    This is a superb Bergerac Sec from an unoaked ‘Bordeaux’ blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon. It is dry and fruity and what the locals call ‘vif’, with an attractive citrus fruit bouquet and a clean, zesty palate. It is a reliable cocktail hour pick-me-up or partner to salads and seafood. Very pale and clear with appealing spring blossom scents and a zesty, citrus-edged palate with a whistle-clean finish.

    Menetou Salon: Domaine Jean Teiller Blanc 2012

    The Teillers' Menetou Salon Blanc is a firm favourite chez Yapp. The atypically ripe, juicy style of Loire Sauvignon Blanc is almost certainly influenced by the year that Patricia Teiller and husband Olivier Luneau (who now run the estate) spent winemaking in New Zealand.
