Sémillon belongs to the noblest white grapes
Sémillon is one of the most improtant white varieties in the world. Even if it is very profit-yielding the Sémillon is a premium grape. It belongs to the old white varieties and has its main growing area in its country of origin France. In France it is because of its knack for noble rot one of the most important ingridients for the famous Sauternes sweet wines from Bordeaux. The bunchrot called botrytis can cause big damage with unripe grapes but is perfect in the maturing for the cuvée. Together with the Sauvignon Blanc wine growers like to blend Sémillon into the famous dry white wines from Bordeaux. Out of France one can find Sémillon in Israel, Chile, Portugal and of course South Africa.
