Lune d'Argent 2016 from Clos des Lunes: A rich, dry white Bordeaux wine

Lune d'Argent from Clos des Lunes is a great, dry white wine from Bordeaux. It is produced on a vineyard of 70 hectares. The soil is diverse with gravel in Sauternes, clay and limestone in Bommes, and alluvial deposits from the Garonne in Barsac. Lune d'Argent 2016 from Clos de Lunes is a blend of 70% Semillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc. The wine is aged in barrels and vats.

2016 Lune d'Argent from Clos des Lunes has an enamoring yellow color, with green reflections. The nose is aromatically complex revealing fragrances of exotic white fruits, citrus aromas and subtle floral notes (acacia, lime trees). The nose is the perfect antecedent to what is tasted. There are touches of fresh lemons and exotic fruits (mangoes, lychees). The salinity of Lune d'Arent 2016 is noticed thanks to the finish. This wine is a clever companionship between the concentration of white fruits flavors and refreshing minerality, a straight-forward wine.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
This is a fairly recent project from Olivier Bernard of Domaine de Chevalier. A blend of 70% Sémillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc, the 2016 Lune d'Argent gives up pretty pink grapefruit, lime cordial and jasmine scents with wafts of beeswax and yuzu zest. The palate is medium-bodied with plenty of freshness and intensity, finishing on a citrusy note. Total production is around 13,500 cases.
