Clos des Lunes "Lune d'Argent" 2015

Member Review by zufrieden:

Another great white from Domaine de Chevalier. Semillon dominant on the nose (that is, a muted, flat, scent of unripe peach on a light bed of cake spice). The entry is smooth, balanced and refreshing - though more dense and viscous than other Bordeaux Blanc in similar price ranges. Fresh and tasty. 89.

Domaine De Chevalier:
Domaine de Chevalier is located in a clearing in the middle of a forest that protects the vines from extremes of temperature. In fact, Chevalier is a sort of secret garden, far from the limelight. This is something of a paradox for such an excellent wine, among the greatest in Bordeaux . Only a great terroir can produce a great wine...

Domaine de Chevalier is located in a clearing in the middle of a forest that protects the vines from extremes of temperature. In fact, Chevalier is a sort of secret garden, far from the limelight. This is something of a paradox for such an excellent wine, among the greatest in Bordeaux . Only a great terroir can produce a great wine... I often start out with these words when speaking about Domaine de Chevalier. They convey our fundamental philosophy, not only with regard to viticulture, but also the spirit that pervades the estate, and the men and women who work here. They improve their already considerable skills year after year on behalf of that which is most essential to a fine wine in my opinion — balance. Read less

The 2013 edition of Domaine de Chevalier's Clos des Lunes (Lune d'Argent) white Bordeaux blend is somewhat more muted on the nose than the previous edition (2012) with gooseberry predominating. Colour is very light yellow. Entry is clean, refreshing and citric - but with a creamier mouthfeel (Semillon dominates) than most other similar Bordeaux Blancs. Some almond astringency on the finish, but showing structure and elegance. Good value. 90 points.
