Description

A Bordeaux dry white wine that delights with precision and freshness

The estate

Clos des Lunes tells the story of an ambitious venture that began in 2011 with an observation and a challenge: to make a legendary dry white wine on the exceptional Sauternes terroir. This is the challenge taken up with passion and energy by the emblematic Olivier Bernard and his family, owners of Domaine de Chevalier in Léognan.

The vineyard

The Clos des Lunes is the reference for Bordeaux Dry White wines on a terroir for sweet wines. The Clos des Lunes watches over a 60-hectare vineyard in the hilly terrain of Sauternes. The vines are 35 years old on average and are planted on a mosaic of soils, each contributing to the signature of the estate's wines. While the deep gravel of Sauternes gives the power, the freshness characterising the gravel soils on a clay-limestone substrate of Bommes is combined with the finesse and elegance of the red soils of Barsac.

Winemaking and ageing

Manual harvest in crates by successive selections. Slow pneumatic pressing. No destemming or maceration. Gravity settling in a cold room and regular stirring of the lees. The wine is aged for 6 months in barrels (25%) and vats (75%).

Blend

Sémillon (70%)
Sauvignon (30%).
