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.

 

  • SURFACE AREA : 75 hectares 70% Sémillon, 30% Sauvignon.
  • Average age: 35 years
  • SOILS : Three complementary terroirs: - on the Sauternes side: Deep gravels with groundwater sources
  • The Power. - on the Bommes side: gravel soils on clay-limestone substrate
  • The Freshness - At Barsac: the alluvial deposits from the Garonne provide minerality
  • HARVEST : Each plot harvested at peak ripeness with hand-picking, in small crates.
  • WINEMAKING AND AGING: 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).
