Lune d'Argent is the heart of the Clos des Lunes production. With a touch of French oak, the Semillon is dense and rich, the Sauvignon Blanc refined and fine. It is the promise of a great dry white wine that captures all the magic of Sauternes.
This vintage was marked by the sequence of two extreme but complementary climatic seasons:
The rainy period from January to early July.
A year of rainfall in just 7 months (!) Puts a strain on the morale of our winegrowers. Fortunately, the essential water reserves in the soil are at their highest.
And then comes the miracle...
The hot, sunny and dry period from July until the end of the harvest.
These excellent water reserves were abundantly exploited by the vineyard during the 4 months of a historically bright, hot and dry summer. In our gravelly soils, maturity was ideal: an almost perfect balance between power, record concentration and freshness.
