Tasting Notes:

Light yellow color with pale green tints. Intense and complex nose of exotic white fruits and citrus fruit mixed with floral notes of linden and acacia. The palate is rich, generous, ample and intensely fruity, with very good tension. The Sauvignon Blanc lemon juice deli- cately coats the exotic sweetness (lychee, mango) of the well-ripe Semillon. Mineral notes bringing good salinity added to this cocktail, to serve a beautiful finish. Concentration of white fruits, mineral freshness and righteousness.

Located in Sauternes, on one of the greatest white wine terroirs in France , 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 grain by grain, by expert hands.

Each plot harvested at peak ripeness with hand-picking, in smal crates.

Slow pressing in a pneumatic winepress, without destemming or maceration. Débourbage (cold settling) by gravity flow in cold room.

Aging on fine lees with regular stirring (bâtonnage) over 6 to 7 months. 25% in barrels, 75% in little vats.

Food pairing

Enjoy with seafood risotto or creamy chicken dishes.
