Default Sauvignon blanc

It´s always Pouilly Fumé - when we discuss the Sauvignon Blanc from the
right-hand side of the Loire. A Pouilly FUmé is always white (blanc), and
always made from SB.
However, sometimes wines from e g California made from Sauv Bl are labelled
as Fumé Blanc, if I remember correctly. I seem to recollect thaat this stems
from some certain producer.

Nils, I believe it was Robert Mondavi who used "Fume Blanc" first.
others will correct me if I'm wrong.
