Clos des Lunes - Lune d’Argent is our "Grande Cuvée ". It reveals the full potential of Sémillon, accompanied by sauvignon.
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.
Located in Sauternes, on one of the greatest white wine terroirs in world , the Clos des Lunes is a magnificent rolling vineyard planted with old sémillon and sauvignon blanc vines. On very old vines, some perfectly golden clusters are chosen and delicately sorted, by expert hands.
SOILS : Three complementary terroirs:
