The homeland of the sauvignon blanc grape is France. But the exact place of origin is still a matter of debate. Some think it is the Loire Valley, some think it is the southwest of the country and the Bordeaux region;
Grapes are the result of numerous crosses with other species. Its long-standing ancestor is thought to be a wild grape from southwestern France. Another relative is called the Savanien berry.
In different countries and cities, the alcohol from this variety has its own name. In the Loire Valley it is Pouilly Fumé and Sancerre, in the USA Fumé Blanc, in Bordeaux Appellation Grave and Sorent.
This type of berry is especially common in the regions of Cheverny, Touraine. Therefore, when buying elite alcohol it is worth paying attention to the label. If it mentions these cities, then the product is safe to buy.

The wine of this brand has a unique production technology based on the principle of harvesting. It does not happen all at once, but in parts, at certain intervals. This is done in order to get berries of different degrees of maturity. The duration of these stages is determined by each producer. Therefore, the taste of finished products may vary. This method makes it possible to create products of different varieties. It is important to make sure that the berries are not overripe and have not lost their flavor.
Fermentation conditions also differ. In France, this stage takes place at a temperature of 16-18 degrees. In other countries it can be much lower.
For alcohol made from these grapes, it does not matter how old they are. It can be consumed young, immediately after production. It does not require a long aging period, on the contrary, it loses its flavor and aromatic qualities with time.
It can only be aged in combination with Cabernet and other sweeter varieties;
Some winemakers practice aging in oak barrels. But this is not done so much for the sake of improving quality as for the purpose of obtaining new flavors.

This elegant drink is considered by experts to be of the elite class. It is best consumed with light dishes. White dry wine perfectly combines with herbs and spices: basil, coriander, mint, fennel, thyme, coriander, turmeric. They can be added to the dish or served separately.
Cheese is not a bad accompaniment to white wine. For this drink it is better to buy soft salty and sour cheeses. Goat cheese is a good choice;
White meat and chicken dishes help the wine to reveal its full potential. It can also be served with fish and other seafood.
Sauvignon pairs well with sushi, which is rare for alcoholic beverages.
This drink should be drunk chilled to 12-13 degrees. Opened bottle should not be stored more than 4 days.
