Lots of crushed citrus, tart pineapple, and white flowers notes emerge on the nose of the 2021 Lune D'Argent Blanc, a medium-bodied, rich, nicely textured white based largely on Semillon. It shows incredible minerality on the palate and is pure, precise, and well worth seeking out.

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.
