Sauvignon Blanc is an old grape variety that was formally identified in the first half of the 18th century in the Gironde and the Loire Valley. Together with Chardonnay, it is the most widely cultivated grape variety in the world. It is highly appreciated for its easily identifiable organoleptic qualities. It is recognised by its floral notes of acacia flowers, its aromas of white fruits (peach, grape…) and above all its notes of citrus and grapefruit.To produce a French whisky with a finish in casks containing Sauvignon Blanc is to seek freshness which comes from the acidity of the wine as well as floral and white fruit notes.
