Winemaker Notes

Pale gold color with green hues. Lively citrus nose, coated with sweet aromas of acacia and lime. Rich pulpy flesh of ripe Semillon. Delicious mineral complexity. The acidity of Sauvignon provides a good tension. Balanced and fruity long finish.
Blend: 70% Semillon, 30% Sauvignon Blanc

Wine Spectator
A fresh, floral style, with a honeysuckle note leading the way, followed by chamomile, quinine and white peach flavors. Offers a long, pure finish.

More Sauvignon Blanc dominated, the 2015 Clos des Lunes Lune d'Argent Blanc is another killer white from this estate. It too is a forward, intense, vibrant 2015 that has loads of fat and texture, full body, good freshness, and exotic notes of caramelized citrus/lime, peach, honeysuckle and tropical fruits. Like the Clos des Lunes Blanc, it can be drunk over the coming 4-5 years or cellared for longer.

In my recent searches for white Bordeaux blends, I have found too many that are simply over the top in their New World style—showing too much oak and alcohol, and sometimes overripe. The 2015 Clos des Lunes Lune d'Argent is an artful blend of crisp green apple, perky minerality, and alluring floral notes. Satisfying enough on the palate for those looking for a modern style of wine, yet plenty stylish for those longing for balance and structure. (Tasted: July 6, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.

Creamy citrus fruit here, the relatively low acidity reflecting the warmth of the year, but there is a real sense of form and structure. Enjoyable drinking.

Clos des Lunes, France
Clos des Lunes Winery Video
Starting several years ago, Olivier Bernard and the team at Domaine de Chevalier made a strong commitment to Clos des Lunes, an ancient vineyard in Sauternes, among the finest in Bordeaux. Relying on an intimate relationship with the terroir, the ultimate aim is to create one of the greatest dry white wines on the market.

Clos des Lunes is located in the heart of a small area encompassing the finest great growths of Sauternes, in the communes of Sauternes and Bommes. Historically, this terroir has always been recognized for its ability to produce top-quality sweet white wines.

However, before botrytisation, the grapes obviously go through a phase of optimum ripeness that is also conducive to making dry white wines. The fine soil and microclimate here are ideally suited to producing very great dry white wines with remarkable freshness. We take maximum advantage of these unique features.
