Bordeaux White Blend
Lesser known to its red counterpart of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon as the Bordeaux Red Blend. However, the Bordeaux White Blend made up of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc is highly important as it makes the dry whites as well as the sweet wines of Sauternes. This blend be it dry or sweet is repeated the world over. Interestingly enough, Semillon is often the major part of the blend and Sauvignon Blanc is added in to give a bit of acid or heighten the aromatics.
