Tasting Notes

  • NM

    Neal Martin, 93-95,
    Score: August 2013

    The 2011 Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru has a more complex bouquet than the Charmes with subtle scents of red cherries, red currant and pomegranate seed intermingling with vanilla pod. The palate is very well-structured, a little tighter than the nose suggests, but with superb grip on the finish. This is one of Mornir’s vin de gardes. Excellent.

  • BURG

    Burghound, 92-94,
    Score: April 2013

    Visible wood mixes with elegant, pure and restrained aromas of perfumed red pinot fruit that displays added depth in the form of Gevrey style earth and spice notes. There is a lightly smoky character to the mineral and soil-driven medium-bodied flavors that retain a fine sense of detail and verve on the long, complex and palate staining finish. This doesn't quite have the sheer depth of material compared to the Bonnes Mares but it's not far off. A classic Griotte that should merit at least a decade of cellar time. Drink 2020+

Producer

Lucien le Moine

Lucien Lemoine is the name of the micro-negociant operation founded by Lebanese husband and wife team Mounir and Rotem Saouma. Mounir used to live and work in a monastery but left to study Oeonology and pursue his passion for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Several years living and working in Burgundy helped Mounir learn the ropes while wife Rotem orientated her studies in Dijon towards wine. Mounir's time in the Cistercian monastery is the inspiration behind the name of their operation: 'le Moine' means monk in French and Lucien was the name given to him by the monks. Lucien Le Moine sources exclusively premier cru or grand cru vineyard parcels and raises them in their vaulted cellars in Beaune, bringing a maximum of 100 barrels to the market each year.

Region

Griotte-Chambertin

Although the name Griotte-Chambertin comes from a word for a grill-pan inspired by the shape of the vineyard, locals and critics alike agree that there is an unmistakeable scent of cherries in this delectable wine. One of the nine Grand Cru vineyards to be found within Gevrey Chambertin, Griotte-Chambertins are wines of great power, complexity and longevity.
