Semillon Blanc
grows mainly in the Bordeaux region and in the South West. Vinegrowers associate it to Sauvignon and Muscadelle in the elaboration of Sauternes and Graves.

The Semillon grape offers a lively and dry white wine. Excellent sweet white wines are also made from Semillon Blanc as its grains are very sweet and low in acid.

Like that of Muscadelle its grapes are quickly invaded by noble rot.

As for most of the Bordeaux grape-variety, Semillon is nowadays cultivated in California.

Aromas : honey, lemon, linden

French wines : Graves, Sauternes, Monbazillac, etc

Other white grapes : Chardonnay - Chenin Blanc - Clairette - Muscadelle - Pinot Gris - Sauvignon - Ugni Blanc - Viognier - Red Grapes
