2019 Clos des Lunes Lune d’Argent Bordeaux Blanc

2019 Clos des Lunes Lune d’Argent Bordeaux Blanc

This might not be the first bottle you gravitate to if you’re not familiar with it, or haven’t tasted many white Bordeaux, but white wine fans should take note.  This is a fantastic wine at a great price.

The retail price is around $19.99 and Costco is selling for $13.99; gotta love that.  Critic scores range from 91-93 and include all the known names.  The more I learned about it, the more I started to feel like everyone else but me seemed to be in the know about this wine.

The blend is interesting too.  White Bordeaux are comprised of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and sometimes a little Muscadelle.  This blend for this bottle leaned on the Semillon, coming in at 70% Semillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc.

In the glass the wine pours medium to deep gold with aromas white flowers and subtle tropical fruit; flavors of peach, apple and pear; medium in body; super crisp and clean in the dry finish. 

This a super versatile white wine; really tasty.  The back label indicates aging potential and I could see that.  It would be fun to try again in a few years.  We’re big fans.

I know you are a fan of Willamette Valley Vineyards in Oregon; as am I. They have just come out with a Preferred Stock Offering for ownership in the winery. They've done this before and I think they have 19,000 owners! It's been out about a week or a little more and they've already raised $1.5M, probably more by now. Their expansion plans look on the mark, especially as it relates to restaurants. I already belong to a wonderful wine club at Marchesi Vineyards in Hood River Oregon, but am contemplating investing the minimum $1,500 in Willamette. Have you heard of other such opportunities for ownership in wineries in any of your knowledge of Costco wines? I am so fortunate to live in Portland where within 30 minutes I can be at any of about 200 wineries. Yet for all of thatopportunity I rely on your blog and appreciate all you do to inform us of great Costco deals.

Hi Jeanne, thanks for the comment and glad you enjoy the blog. I did hear about the WVV offering on Twitter and am going to look into it for sure. Sounds interesting. In addition to great wines, there are also great people at WVV and I would love to be a part of it, even in the smallest way. Thanks again for sharing.
