Tasting Notes

  • AM

    Allen Meadows,
    Score: 92-94

    This is also clean and bright with a lovely combination of plum liqueur, Asian-style tea, spice and a similar hint of sandalwood. There is a lovely sense of underlying tension to the well-detailed medium-bodied flavors that flash good power on the focused and youthfully austere finish. This is a relatively big Ech though one with well-integrated supporting tannins that are dense but fine.

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

Echézeaux

One of two Grand Crus within the Flagey-Echezeaux area right in the heart of the Cote de Nuits. Relatively large and consequently diverse for a Grand Cru, the better Echézeaux wines undoubtedly deserve this status. As always in Burgundy vineyard location and grower is critical.
