Sauvignon Gris is a pink-tinged cousin of SauvignonBlanc that was once widely planted in the Bordelais before falling out of favor because of its low yields and the increasing commercial viability of Sauvignon Blanc. Luckily, André Chatenoud still has some Gris growing in the chalk at Château de Bellevue, giving us a taste of what Bordeaux whites might have tasted like in an era past. It is just as lively and stimulating on the palate as a fine Sauvignon Blanc, but the flavors are a bit more exotic and there is no overtly grassy note. Minerals, honey, flowers, and a peppery, spicy element make this rare white a truly singular wine capable of providing many thrills as an apéritif or at table. –Anthony Lynch
