"Enticing, with lime custard, verbena, green apple and green almond notes that are juicy but elegant overall. The long finish has pretty details and this should blossom after bottling. Score range: 92-95 -JM" (WS)

"The tentative blend of the 2017 Lune d'Argent is 70% Sémillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc. It features lovely ripe peaches, fresh pears and spiced apples with touches of baking bread and white pepper. The palate is medium-bodied, fine, fresh, elegant and well balanced with a clean finish." (WA)

"The 2017 Lune d’Argent had been bottled three weeks prior to my visit. It has a clean and fresh bouquet with waxy, honeysuckle scents. The palate is fresh on the entry with a twist of lemon, a fine thread of acidity and a crisp, dried orange peel tinged finish. Fine." (VM)

"Pretty exotic fruit with grapefruit and lemon character. Medium body, bright acidity and a delicious finish." (JS)

"The 2017 Clos des Lunes Lune d'Argent is the normal blend of 70% Sémillon and 30% Sauvignon and this cuvée sees only older oak barrels. It’s a medium-bodied, nicely concentrated, classic Bordeaux Blanc and offers plenty of caramelized citrus, crushed rocks, and hints of sappy herbs. Clean, pure, and precise, it’s another white from Olivier Bernard well worth your time and money." (JD)

"Ripe, crisp citrus leaning on pomelo, lemon and white peach notes, this is a soft, open and juicy wine displaying a squeeze of lime and a touch of honey in the finish. 743 Views Tasted Apr 26, 2018" (JL)
