These are rich and noble wines from the Bordeaux region, both made with predominately semillon grapes which are typical of the region, with small amounts of sauvignon blanc and on occasion muscadelle grapes which have been affected by the infamous noble rot or Botrytis cinerea. Barsac lies within the Sauternes region and goes by either name.
