Description

A lively and structured Bordeaux dry white wine

The estate

Clos des Lunes traces its history from an ambitious venture starting in 2011 with an observation and a challenge: to make a legendary dry white wine on the exceptional Sauternes terroir. This is the challenge taken up by the emblematic Olivier Bernard and his family, owners of Domaine de Chevalier in Léognan, who, with passion and energy, have worked to make Clos des Lunes one of the greatest references for dry white Bordeaux wines on this sweet wines territory.

The wine

Prestigious and rare, the Clos des Lunes "Lune d'Or" is the result of Olivier Bernard's ambition to produce one of the greatest wines in the world. Made from a meticulous manual selection of grapes from very old vines, this Bordeaux Dry White wine with great ageing potential is the ultimate expression of purity and complexity.

Winemaking and ageing

Manual harvest in crates by successive selections according to ripeness. Slow pneumatic pressing. No destemming or maceration. Natural settling by gravity in a cold room with regular stirring of the lees. The wine is aged for 12 to 15 months in barrels.

Blend

Sémillon (70%)
Sauvignon Blanc (30%).
