Clos des Lunes, Lune d’Argent, Bordeaux Blanc, 2018: Produced and owned by the celebrated Domaine de Chevalier from Pessac-Léognan, but made with grapes grown in vineyards situated in the Sauternes region, this is the first kosher run of this wine. A blend of 70% Sémillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc, aged in oak barrels for about 8 months. Bright yellow in color, with light green reflections. The nose is very expressive and aromatic, showing ripe lemon, honeydew, pear, stone fruits, as well as hints of fresh jasmine. Medium-bodied, with some viscosity typical of Sémillon, yet lively and crisp on the palate. Notes of ripe citrus fruit, Bartlett pear, yellow plum, juicy sweet melon, subtle hints of basil, nice tension on the mid palate, medium-plus acidity, with great saline and earthy minerals, as well as touches of fresh almonds and cashew on the long and elegant finish. Drinking beautifully now but has the structure to hold and evolve nicely over the next few years.
