Le Sémillon

White grape variety

Sémillon is the variety traditionally used to make lightly sweet wines – moëlleux, because it is well suited to the development of noble rot. It nonetheless gives dry wines their full-body and complexity. Sémillon produces complex, aromatic and fine wines with good ageing potential.

The origins of the variety

Sémillon is originally from the South-west of France, and particularly the North of the Aquitaine region. It is the second most grown vine in France.

Its production has crossed our borders however, since it has reached Australia, California and South Africa.
