Rich, pleasant and easy to drink, there is some serious body to this barrel-fermented wine that features 20% Sémillon for additional heft. A touch sweet, this is about as chunky as S.B. gets, and it should please Chardonnay drinkers. Orange-blossom aromas lead into plump, ripe grapefruit and lychee flavors. Soft, but still sprightly.
