Founded by the owners of Domaine de Chevalier & Stephane Derenoncourt, one of the top winemakers in France, the Clos des Lunes 2018 is no ordinary Bordeaux. A blend of 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc located a stone's throw from Chevalier's famed vineyards in Graves. Based on a special selection of vineyard lots handpicked by Deroncourt and vinified by Bernard’s team at Domaine de Chevalier, the Clos des Lunes aims to be little more modern in styling with an excellent quality-price ratio. A little more fruit forward than most Bordeaux, the nose is intense with red and black fruits with the typical notes of violets from Merlot. Don't miss this amazing everyday Bordeaux to enjoy now with an hour in the decanter, or over the next 5 years.
"A ripe, pretty red with blackberry, and dried-tobacco aromas and flavors. It’s medium-bodied with firm, lightly chewy tannins and a delicious finish already." James Suckling, 91-92 Points
