Our Wines / Tuesday, November 2nd, 2021

Lune d’Argent is the new project of the Bernard family, owners of the iconic Domaine de Chevalier in Pessac-Leognan. This dry white comes from an exceptional terroir located between the Châteux d’Yquem and Guiraud. These soils are not only known to produce the best Sauternes but also stunning dry white wines, a blend of 70% Semillon and 30% Sauvignon

“The 2019 Lune d’Argent is more generous and slightly more honeyed on the nose compared to the Lune d’Or. This is very fragrant and articulates more “Sauternes” character. The palate is well balanced with a crisp opening, maybe drier than the aromatics augur with fine acidity and a lovely stem ginger/saline finish that urges you back for another sip. Another excellent white from Clos des Lune.”

92-93 points James Suckling

“A really beautiful white that is already delicious to taste with dried apple and a lightly salty undertone. Medium to full body. Firm, fresh palate and a creamy phenolic texture.”

91-93 points Jeb Dunnuck

“I continue to love these Semillon-dominated whites from Clos des Lunes. The 2019 Clos Des Lunes Lune D’Argent Blanc has a terrific sense of purity and elegance as well as crisp citrus, pineapple, and white flower aromas and flavors. It’s medium-bodied, has a beautiful texture, a great mid-palate, building richness, and a great finish.”
