Sémillon wine is loved for its full body, like Chardonnay, but with flavors closer to Pinot Gris or Sauvignon Blanc.
Semillon wines are made in the French region of Bordeaux. The primary fruit flavours in Semillon wines are lemon, apple, pear, and green papaya. There’s something very waxy about the taste of Sémillon which wine writers often describe as lanolin. Depending on where Semillon is grown it can range from being a zesty, palate-cleansing wine like Sauvignon Blanc to a rich, creamy, lemon-flavored wine like oaked Chardonnay.
Here, Hubert de Boüard Semillon nose has notes of lemon, green apple, and yuzu. The palate is fruity and offers juiciness, freshness and tangy frame

2 reviews for Bordeaux AOC, Semillon by Hubert de Boüard, 2020
Paul C –
This is quite a heavily oaked wine, with strong notes of citrus, pineapple, perhaps pears along with the vanilla sweetness from the oak. For me it demands quite strong food. Happily I am drinking it with some sashimi and rice rolls where I’m going heavy on the wasabi and ginger, and for that it’s working really well – big enough to complement those strong flavours. For less strongly flavoured food you’d really need to like oaky wine for this to work.
