Savagnin or Savagnin blanc (not to be confused with Sauvignon blanc) is a variety of white wine grape with green-skinned berries.
It is possibly a descendant of Savagnin.

Vin jaune

yellow wine
It is mostly grown in the Jura region of France, where it is made into Savagnin wine or the famous vin jaune and vin de paille. It is most famous as the only grape allowed in the vin jaunes of Château-Chalon and L'Étoile, similar to fino sherry with a covering of flor but not fortified and without the use of the solera system.
The wine is made from the Savagnin grape, with some of the most premium examples coming from the marl based vineyards in the Château-Chalon AOC.

Gewürztraminer

Galet believed that a musqué ('muscat-like') mutation in the Red Traminer/Savagnin rose then led to the extra-aromatic Gewürztraminer, although in Germany these names are all regarded as synonymous.
This grape variety is a mutation of the Savagnin blanc, also named Traminer in South Tyrol (northern Italy).

Klevener de Heiligenstein

The Klevener de Heiligenstein or Heiligensteiner Klevener found around Heiligenstein in Alsace may represent an outpost of the Durbach vines.
Klevener de Heiligenstein, also known in English by its German name, Heiligensteiner Klevener, is a designation used on Alsace wine made from pink-skinned Savagnin rose grapes, a variety in the Traminer family, but which is less aromatic than Gewürztraminer, which is widely planted in Alsace.

Château-Chalon AOC

Château-Chalon

Only white wines from the Savagnin grape made in the vin jaune ("yellow wine") style can be made using this appellation.

Aubin blanc

The varieties Aubin blanc and the Champagne grape Petit Meslier may be the result of a cross between Gouais blanc and Savagnin blanc.
DNA fingerprinting has shown that Aubin is the result of a cross between Gouais blanc and Savagnin.

Petit Meslier

The varieties Aubin blanc and the Champagne grape Petit Meslier may be the result of a cross between Gouais blanc and Savagnin blanc.
DNA fingerprinting has shown that like Aubin blanc, Petit Meslier is the result of a cross between Gouais blanc and Savagnin.

Musqué

Galet believed that a musqué ('muscat-like') mutation in the Red Traminer/Savagnin rose then led to the extra-aromatic Gewürztraminer, although in Germany these names are all regarded as synonymous.
The most well-known musqué grape is Gewürztraminer, which is a musqué mutation of a red-skinned Traminer, which is also known as Savagnin rose in France.

Straw wine

It is mostly grown in the Jura region of France, where it is made into Savagnin wine or the famous vin jaune and vin de paille.
Perhaps the best known example is made in the Cotes du Jura (Arbois and sometimes L'Etoile) from a blend of Chardonnay, Savagnin and the red grape Poulsard.

Savagnin Rose

At some point, either Traminer or Savagnin blanc mutated into a form with pink-skinned berries, called Red Traminer or Savagnin rose.
Savagnin Rose is a member of the Traminer family of grapes, and as such is related to both Savagnin Blanc and Gewürztraminer.

Gouais blanc

The varieties Aubin blanc and the Champagne grape Petit Meslier may be the result of a cross between Gouais blanc and Savagnin blanc.
It produced Räuschling, Petit Meslier and Aubin when pollinated by Traminer/Savagnin, and Riesling and Elbling when pollinated by a cross of a wild grape with Traminer.

Gringet

The Gringet of Savoie has no link with Savagnin blanc.
It is unique to the region and there is no link with Savagnin or any Traminer variety.
