    The expression of a great terroir in a white wine of Bordeaux

    With the Lune d'Argent 2017, the reputable Clos des Lunes estate offers one of the finest wines in the appellation of Bordeaux Blancs Secs.

    Located near Sauternes, one of the most famous white wine terroirs in the world, Clos des Lunes oversees a vineyard of 75 hectares, blessed with a prestigious terroir.

    Derived from a remarkable vintage for the dry white wines of Bordeaux, the Lune d'Argent 2017 Grande Cuvee of the property reveals a faithful expression of its terroir in a blend that marries opulent Semillon (70%) through the sweet flavors of ripe fruit and the freshness of Sauvignon Blanc (30%) through beautiful notes of citrus.

    With its purity of fruit and complexity of aromas, marked by citrus and exotic fruits, the Lune d'Argent 2017 exudes all of the typical characteristics of its vintage. On the palate, the wine reveals a beautiful, full-bodied and intensely fruity structure, perfectly balancing the generosity of aromas with the tension created by a beautiful acidity. The palate ends with a persistent, mineral finish. A tasty dry white wine from Bordeaux to appreciate in its youth, but which can also age a few years.

    To celebrate the 2017 vintage, Clos des Lunes has created a very limited edition of 100 numbered bottles, exclusively available in the double magnum format and showcasing the Lune d'Argent 2017 in a beautiful bottle, graced with a golden hue.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    After fermentation in 500-liter cement tanks, stainless steel vats and barrels, a portion of the 2017 Lune d'Argent was aged in 15% new French oak barrels. The wine was aged on its lees with regular bâtonnages during the six-month aging regimen. The blend is 70% Sémillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc. It opens with lemonade, spiced apples, lime cordial, fresh grass and grapefruit scents plus wafts of wet pebbles and honeysuckle. Medium-bodied, clean and refreshing, it finishes on a lingering citrusy note.
