There are several different versions of the sauvignon grape, including sauvignon jaune, sauvignon gris, sauvignon noir, sauvignon rose, and even sauvignon violet.
Sauvignon is used to make some of Bordeaux’s best Graves whites, including the dry white from first-growth Château Haut-Brion. It is also part of the blend with semillon for the dry wine (pronounced ‘ee-grec’), that is produced by Château d’Yquem in Sauternes.
There is, or was, an actual wine named Cat’s Pee on a Gooseberry Bush, made from sauvignon blanc.
