Marks and reviews
A lively and structured Bordeaux dry white wine
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.
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.

Characteristics and tasting tips for Clos des Lunes "Lune d’Or" 2022
The wine has a shining golden colour.
Refined and complex, the nose harmoniously combines fruity (white fruits, yellow peach, nectarine, apricot) and floral (hawthorn, acacia, honeysuckle) fragrances with those of aromatic herbs and cinnamon.
An ample, concentrated attack gives way to a lively and smooth palate where the freshness mingles with a lovely structure.
