Clos des Lunes "Lune d'Argent" Bordeaux 2020 92-93JS
Located in Sauternes, on one of the greatest white wine terroirs in France, Clos des Lunes is a magnificent rolling vineyard planted with old vine Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. The Clos des Lunes vineyard covers 65 hectares in the hills of Sauternes. The vines, aged 35 years on average, are planted in deep gravel upon clay-limestone subsoil. The same winemaking team as Domaine de Chevalier (Olivier Bernard and Remi Edange) brings you this expertly selected, hand harvested wine. Traditional vinification and aging of the best lots in barrels and vats for 6 to 7 months (25% in barrels, 75% in little vats). Aging on fine lees with regular stirring (batonnage). 70% Semillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc
92-93 points James Suckling
A dense, fruity white with sliced lemon, apple and some dried pineapple. It’s full and flavorful. Quite layered. Pretty fruit and firmness, giving it form. Mostly semillon with some sauvignon blanc. Drink now.

Gains an extra layer from its Key lime and Meyer lemon notes, with typical gooseberry, white asparagus and fleur de sel accents. Keeps up its energy, with everything knitting together on the finish. Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now through 2024
The 2020 Lune d’Argent offers up vibrant notes of fresh grapefruit, lemon zest and green apples with touches of elderflower and chalk dust. The medium-bodied palate is refreshing and racy with intense citrus flavors and an invigorating finish.

While this Bordeaux may be low priced, it really delivers! This is probably my favorite sub $100 Bordeaux.
