The key point of Sauvignon Blanc is its straightforwardness. Shades are from greenish yellow to straw yellow. Aromas range from grass, nettles, blackcurrant leaf and asparagus to green apples and gooseberries, and to more esoteric notes such as cats' pee and gunflint.
Sauvignon is a surprising wine for its versatility in combinations. Its sharp and herbaceous olfactory profile allows it to combine with vegetable dishes, preparations rich in aromatic herbs, pork. It goes wonderfully with Genoese pesto pasta. The acidity of the Sauvignon will also allow you to combine it with many spicy dishes: therefore ideal to accompany Mexican, Korean and Indian cuisine, or spicy fish-based dishes.
