Each Grape’s Contribution. Sauternes and Barsac wines carry considerable Sémillon in their blends. This is because Sémillon’s thin-skinned structure makes it an easy target for noble rot. These wines are like no other Bordeaux wine. Sauternes are the most difficult, expensive and labor intensive wine in all of Bordeaux to produce. Most of the labor takes place in the vineyards. Because the grapes used to produce sweet, white Bordeaux wine must be effected by botrytis, the vineyards can take weeks to pick.

The same applies to other sauternes-like wines from in or around the Bordeaux region such as cadillac, loupiac and monbazillac, and to late-harvest sauvignon and semillon wines .
