Staff Pick Notes

This is a marriage of Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Sémillon is a grape with a distinctive Chamomile and Beeswax profile that has been coupled with the much more fruit-forward Sauvignon Blanc in Bordeaux for hundreds of years.

And where pure Sémillon can be a bit uninteresting, the addition of Sauvignon Blanc offers a very complex and exciting mouthful. I won’t completely spoil the palate for you, but it’s worthwhile to have a glass of this by yourself and just close your eyes and envision yourself on the French coast where these grapes grow so beautifully.
