Sauvignon Blanc is a white varietal with a notable aroma, which is often characterized as "grassy" or "herbal." The pure varietal is found mainly in the Loire, especially in and around Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume. As part of a blend, the grape is all over Bordeaux, in Pessac-Leognan, Graves and the Medoc; it also shows up in Sauternes. New Zealand has had striking success with Sauvignon Blanc in recent years, producing its own perfumed, fruity style that has spread to North America and back to France.
