2015 Clos des Lunes 'Lune d'Argent' Bordeaux France

$25.99 USD

The 2015 Lune d'Argent is a blend of one-third Semillon and two-thirds Sauvignon Blanc that had been bottled in March 2016. It was cropped at 25 hectoliters per hectare. It has quite a forward, rich, generous bouquet with subtle honeysuckle and apricot notes merging with the apply aromas. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry, a little grassiness at first, gently opening up to a gooseberry, nettle and green apple-flavored finish. This might be my pick of Olivier Bernard's three 2015 offerings under the Clos des Lunes label and it comes highly recommended.

90 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

A fresh, floral style, with a honeysuckle note leading the way, followed by chamomile, quinine and white peach flavors. Offers a long, pure finish.
