2017 Clos Des Lunes, Lune d'Or 75CL
Wine Rating: RP 93 points

"The 2017 Lune d'Or is showing especially well, exhibiting aromas of crisp orchard and stone fruits mingled with notions of freshly baked bread, beeswax and deftly judged reduction.
Medium to full-bodied, layered and seamless, it's beginning to flesh out on the palate as the Sémillon expresses itself, but that flesh is underpinned by lively acids that animate the long, mineral finish."
"The winemaking practices at Clos des Lunes take inspiration from those of Domaine de Chevalier, and benefit from an expertise in creating impressive dry white wines. Just like at Chevalier, the harvest at Clos des Lunes is carried out by hand, with extreme care and several passes through the vines as the grapes reach maturity.
Lune d’Argent is the heart of Clos des Lunes’ production. They firmly believe in the future of this legendary terroir and its truly original style. With a touch of French oak, the Semillon is dense and rich, the Sauvignon Blanc refined and precise. This Cuvee of dry white wine promises to convey all the magic of Sauternes."
