Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc, a very recognizable white wine that is popularly dry, refreshingly zesty, and has strong, fruity and herbal characteristics. Ever hear of the term “pyrazines?” It’s a term noting the strong herbaceous flavors that are derived from compounds called Methoxypyrazines. These compounds are also found in bell peppers!

A flagship varietal to the Loire Valley in France (Sancerre) and New Zealand, the Sauvignon Blancs from New Zealand tend to be more aromatic and have tropical fruit notes than those from the Bordeaux or Loire Valley regions in France. Usually fermented in stainless steel vats, Sauvignon Blanc gives a clean, crisp flavor with occasional mineral notes, but no characteristics from oak, like you would normally see in a grape varietal like Chardonnay. However, look out for Fumé Blanc, this style of wine is an oaked-version of Sauvignon Blanc.

Based in Verdigny, the Cherrier brothers farm 20 hectares of vines spread out over five different villages around Sancerre and 10 hectares in Menetou Salon. The diversity of vineyard sites allows them to blend Sauvignon Blanc from the three types of typical Sancerre terroir to create harmonious and balanced wines.

Since 1994, Francois and Jean-Marie Cherrier have created a sustainable, biodynamic viticulture program using ecological techniques such as planting cover crops in the vineyards, eliminating chemical fertilizers and vinification products, grey water reuse at the winery, and geobiology.
