Story

Story

The 45° line of latitude, dear to Olivier Bernard, offers the perfect climatic conditions for Bordeaux wine makers to reveal the specificity of each of their terroirs. Bordeaux remains so the smallest common denominator to all the wines produced in our region. But what is a Bordeaux in fact?

Like Champaign people building their brut, manifesto of the style and the Know-How of a House, the manager of Domaine de Chevalier & the famous wine advisor (also at Domaine de Chevalier!) have decided together to build their own idea of Bordeaux: LA PETITE LUNE

Issued from beautiful batches of various properties advised & vinified under the watch of Stéphane Derenoncourt, and blended with Olivier Bernard, LA PETITE LUNE wants to be stylish red & white Bordeaux reflecting the philosophy of its creator.

The opportunity to select juices all around Bordeaux, gives this PETITE LUNE the chance of keeping the good features of each vintage without suffering from its impact. This “free of Speech” this is also the main characteristic of this new gem.

Finally, the packaging is also taken into account since this new label in the “Bernard” galaxy benefits from the beautiful Burdigala “XVIIIth century” style developed for Clos des Lunes,  and will be packaged in a superb 6 Bottles White cardboard.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

A blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, this is explosively scented with red and black currant, slate, herb and lead pencil. Give it some air and the flavors unwind to coat your palate with rich fruit, herb, and more. Great density and juicy freshness here to enjoy now with an hour in decanter or over the next 10 years.

James Suckling – 91-92 points

A ripe, pretty red with blackberry, dried-tobacco and seaweed aromas and flavors. It’s medium-bodied with firm, lightly chewy tannins and a delicious finish already.
