Lune d'Argent

Clos de Lunes

2019 Lune d'Argent

Bordeaux | Gironde

Lune d’Argent is the heart of Clos des Lunes’ production. We firmly believe in the future of this legendary terroir and its truly original style. With a touch of French oak, the Sémillon is dense and rich, the Sauvignon Blanc refined and precise. This cuvée of dry white wine promises to convey all the magic of Sauternes.

Rich fruity flavour palate, reminiscent of the nose and very unctuous. The acidity plays well its role by supporting this richness and by bringing a freshness of very suave taste. The tight finish is highlighted by very fresh flavours of candied citrus and a very mineral salinity.

Bordeaux Supérieur | Gironde

A beautiful wine of an intense red color. An elegant nose of ripe fruits and delicate spices notes. Rich and generous, it develops into a complex mouth with roundness and character. A very structured wine with suave tannins and a long-lasting and pleasant finish with the potential of cellaring for a minimum 15 years.
