Originating from the region between Sauternes and Bordeaux, Sémillon takes its name from semeljun, the local dialect word for Saint-Émilion. DNA tests suggest it is related to Sauvignon Blanc, with which it is often blended in the sweet wines of Sauternes. This variety with variable yields is prone to grey mould. Uncommon in Switzerland, it gives herbaceous wines with a waxy, citrus aroma.
