The richness and freshness of a great dry white wine from Bordeaux

Fruit of the superb vineyard of Clos des Lunes, Lune d'Argent is one of the greatest dry white wines from Bordeaux.

Radiating on the exceptional terroir of Sauternes, whose reputation is well established for sweet wines, Clos des Lunes watches over a vineyard of 70 hectares, spread over 3 complementary terroirs. The Sauternes soils, made up of deep gravel with underground springs, are a guarantee of power in the wines. The gravelly soils on a clay-limestone substratum of Bommes bring freshness while the red soils of Barsac are the origin of wines endowed with great elegance and finesse.

Lune d'Argent 2018 du Clos des Lunes perfectly captures the expression of this exceptional terroir by revealing the identity of the old vines of Semillon (70%) and Sauvignon Blanc (30%) that make up the blend. Resulting from a manual harvest with an extremely rigorous selection of grapes, sorted grain by grain by expert hands, Lune d'Argent 2018 du Clos des Lunes was aged for 6 months, 25% in barrels and 75% in vats.

On tasting, Lune d'Argent 2018 du Clos des Lunes has a light gold colour. Intensely aromatic, the nose reveals notes of white berries evolving on greedy notes of summer fruits evoking peach, apricot or melon jam. Delicate notes of citrus zest punctuate the bouquet. On the palate, this great Bordeaux dry white has a deliciously unctuous mouth that expresses all the richness of the fruit. Throughout the development in the mouth, the great freshness of the wine gives a sensation of perfect balance.

Lune d'Argent 2018 du Clos des Lunes is presented in a bottle with a unique shape, taking up the shape of 18th century bottles. To fully appreciate Lune d'Argent 2018 du Clos des Lunes, it is recommended to serve it at a temperature of 10°.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Lune d'Argent comes from the lieu-dit Cap Lanne in the parish of Sauternes. After fermentation in cement tanks, a portion of the new wine was aged in 25% new French oak barrels. The wine was aged on its lees with regular bâtonnage during the six-month aging regimen. A blend of 70% Sémillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc with 13.5% alcohol, the 2018 Lune d'Argent is scented of fresh grapefruit, lemon zest and lime leaves with touches of chalk dust, white pepper and dill seed. Medium-bodied, crisp and clean in the mouth, it has a lovely pure citrusy nature and chalky finish.
