92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2017 Clos Des Lunes Lune D'Argent Blanc offers a touch more richness and depth as well as beautiful notes of ripe peach, white flowers, Meyer lemons, and sappy herbs. It’s a pretty, elegant white that has deceptive richness and depth as well as a great finish. This cuvee comes from the Cap Lanne Lieu-dit, largely gravelly soils, and is 70% Semillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc brought up in 15% new French oak. It hit 13% alcohol and is a gorgeous wine.

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark After fermentation in 500-liter cement tanks, stainless steel vats and barrels, a portion of the 2017 Lune d'Argent was aged in 15% new French oak barrels. The wine was aged on its lees with regular bâtonnages during the six-month aging regimen. The blend is 70% Sémillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc. It opens with lemonade, spiced apples, lime cordial, fresh grass and grapefruit scents plus wafts of wet pebbles and honeysuckle. Medium-bodied, clean and refreshing, it finishes on a lingering citrusy note. (LPB) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Lune d'Argent is quite deep in this vintage, with a striking center of fruit and terrific overall balance. Lemon confit, white flowers and mint give this Sémillon-based dry white lovely nuance to play off the stony, white orchard fruit character. (NM) Inner quote mark (2/2020)
