The 2015 Lune D'Or, Olivier Bernard's top white from Clos des Lunes, is bright, tightly wound and crystalline, with remarkable purity and precision throughout. Lune d'Or is 70% Sémillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc fermented in barrel, with lees stirring, but blocked malolactic fermentation. Lemon peel, white flowers and mineral notes abound in this deeply expressive, dry white. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Lune d'Or, under Oliver Bernard's Clos des Lunes label, is a blend of 65% Semillon and 35% Sauvignon Blanc. It has a pretty lime cordial, blackcurrant leaf and rose water-scented bouquet the gently unfolds in the glass. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry, quite noticeable acidity with green apple and freshly cut pear; this leads to a slight chalky, backward finish, almost Loire-like in style - a good Loire at that. Give this a couple of years in bottle. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2018-2027

This is very powerful and dense with lots of dried apple, pineapple skin and peach character. Even saffron. Full body, medium sweet and a long and flavorful finish. Mar 2016, JamesSuckling.com

Has a plump edge, with straw, shortbread and macadamia nut hints, followed by a core of juicy white peach and yellow apple flavors. Shortbread notes hang through the finish. Lacks the zip of the top examples, but lovely nonetheless. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

The top dry wine from this Sauternes-based property is very much a Semillon-based white, with flavours of green herbs, honeysuckle and citrus rind, attractive oak and plenty of texture and weight. Appealing stuff. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2017-2024
