Product Description:

"Lune Blanche provides ultimate refreshment. Soft and harmonious, it is not matured in oak and intended to be enjoyed in its youth. It offers vivacious, pure ripe fruit that will bring pleasure to all occasions.

Light yellow color with pale green tints. Pure and intense nose of vine peach with acacia flower Generous on the palate, straight and good tension. Aromas of white fruit ripe and pulpy aromas. Mineral salinity making balance and giving immediate pleasure.

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." - Winery
