Sauvignon

White grape variety

Sauvignon is very expressive; it develops intense aromas of blackcurrant buds or boxwood, but also of citrus, and even exotic fruit. Very fresh, it expresses beautiful minerality on our terroirs of Montravel. It is the ideal grape for dry, moëlleux and liquoreux wines, some of which contain a 100% of it.

The origins of the variety

Sauvignon is a vine originally from the Atlantic coast in the West of France. It is not known whether it originates from the banks of the Loire river or of the Garonne.
