The 2015 Lune d'Argent is the mid-tier wine from Olivier Bernard's Clos des Lunes project. This Sémillon/Sauvignon Blanc blend offers lovely texture and plenty of freshness. Attractive scents of apricot, peach, mint and candied lemon peel add depth in a pleasing white to drink young, while the flavors remain bright. Lune d'Argent is 70% Sémillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc fermented in cement and aged in neutral oak, with some batonnage to add richness. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Lune d'Argent is a blend of one-third Semillon and two-thirds Sauvignon Blanc that had been bottled in March 2016. It was cropped at 25 hectoliters per hectare. It has quite a forward, rich, generous bouquet with subtle honeysuckle and apricot notes merging with the apply aromas. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry, a little grassiness at first, gently opening up to a gooseberry, nettle and green apple-flavored finish. This might be my pick of Olivier Bernard's three 2015 offerings under the Clos des Lunes label and it comes highly recommended. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2017-2022
