Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 

The 2016 Lune d'Argent is a blend of 70% Sémillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc. It has a simple pear and beeswax-scented bouquet that demanded some coaxing from the glass. The palate is well balanced, but to me does not quite possess the complexity and bite of the 2015 Lune d'Argent. It has satisfying freshness.;2018 - 2022

Taste & Aroma

Score:93

The acidity in this really gives verve and intensity to the wine. Lemon and salt character already. Full yet vivid. Exciting. Great value. Drink or hold.

Region

Bordeaux is not only the most famous wine producing region in France but in the world, with the most prestigious châteaux and wines in the industry. Its history dates back to the Roman times and today is the largest producing region of fine wines. Vineyards in Bordeaux are known by châteaux and therefore the name of each individual château is an important brand. 

Many top wines are sold ‘En Primeur’ meaning that they are sold in the barrel prior to bottling. Almost 90% of the wine produced in Bordeaux is red (called ‘Claret’ in the UK) from over 8,500 producers. The main reason for the success of the wine production in Bordeaux is the perfect combination of climate, with long hours of sunshine ideal for ripening the grapes and well-draining gravel soil. Appellations are an important part of the Bordeaux culture and the region has 54 appellations recognized by the AOC, the Appellation d’Origine Controlle.
