Lune d'Argent, Bordeaux Sec Blanc 2015

R295

30 in stock

Notes

70% Sémillon, 30% Sauvignon

Located in Sauternes, on one of the greatest white wine terroirs in France , the Clos des Lunes is a magnificent rolling vineyard planted with old sémillon and sauvignon blanc vines. On very old vines, some perfectly golden clusters are chosen and delicately sorted grain by grain, by expert hands.

Produced by the Bernard Family of Domaine de Chevalier, this is a modern Bordeaux white.

Vinification:
Slow pressing in a pneumatic winepress, without destemming or maceration. Débourbage (cold settling) by gravity flow in cold room. Aging on fine lees with regular stirring (bâtonnage).

Tasting notes:
'The 2015 Lune d'Argent is a blend of one-third Semillon and two-thirds Sauvignon Blanc that had been bottled in March 2016. It was cropped at 25 hectoliters per hectare. It has quite a forward, rich, generous bouquet with subtle honeysuckle and apricot notes merging with the apply aromas. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry, a little grassiness at first, gently opening up to a gooseberry, nettle and green apple-flavored finish. This might be my pick of Olivier Bernard's three 2015 offerings under the Clos des Lunes label and it comes highly recommended.' – Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate 90/100
