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

Critical Acclaim

JS 93
James Suckling
The acidity in this really gives verve and intensity to the wine. Lemon and salt character already. Full yet vivid. Exciting. Great value. Drink or hold.
D 92
Decanter
A recent project (first vintage 2011) from Olivier Bernard of Domaine de Chevalier. A blend of 70% Semillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc, from vineyards around Sauternes. Beautifully fragrant, with richness on the palate plus stone fruit and pear notes. Lingering lime acidity to finish.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
This has hints of acacia, melon and green almond flittering about, while the main core of yellow apple, white peach and star fruit flavors holds sway. Floral and straw notes gild the finish. Drink now through 2021.

Jeb Dunnuck
Made from 70% Sémillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc and produced by the team of Olivier Bernard at Domaine de Chevalier, the 2016 Clos des Lunes Lune d'Argent is a beautiful white readers should buy a case of. Lemon, citrus blossom, white flowers, and honeysuckle notes all emerge from this medium-bodied, pure, elegant white that has both richness and freshness. This is the entry level wine of the estate yet it’s all hand-harvested, fermented in concrete, and aged in older barrels. It’s a beautiful wine.

Clos des Lunes Winery Image
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.
