The Lune d'Argent comes from the lieu-dit Cap Lanne in the parish of Sauternes. After fermentation in cement tanks, a portion of the new wine was aged in 25% new French oak barrels. The wine was aged on its lees with regular bâtonnage during the six-month aging regimen. A blend of 70% Sémillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc with 13.5% alcohol, the 2018 Lune d'Argent is scented of fresh grapefruit, lemon zest and lime leaves with touches of chalk dust, white pepper and dill seed. Medium-bodied, crisp and clean in the mouth, it has a lovely pure citrusy nature and chalky finish

Perfumed and very pretty white peaches and mangoes on the nose. Medium-to full-bodied, layered and rich with lots of beautiful fruit and a long, flavorful finish. Vibrant acidity holds the finish fresh. Love drinking it now.

(90-93) pts Wine Spectator

Intense white peach, jasmine and fennel notes stream through, with a flash of herb on the still-tight finish. Shows very nice length and focus. Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc.

Vinous

The 2018 Lune d'Argent is soft, open-knit and inviting with lovely orchard fruit and floral character. Dried apricot, baked apple and dried flowers are nicely layered in this pretty dry white. The 2018 is 70% Sémillon and 30% Sauvignon, done mostly in concrete, with a portion of the juice vinified in oak.
