Lucien le Moine Bâtard-Montrachet 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"(from vines on the Pernand side; finished its malo very early, in February of 2010): Light medium yellow. Pungently mineral aromas of pineapple, wild herbs and crushed stone. On the palate, powerful rocky minerality is perfectly balanced by the sweetness of the vintage. Much deeper and more layered than the Corton Blanc, not to mention more nuanced. A wonderfully silky, backward wine that finishes with palate-staining salty minerality...93-96" IWC 09/11 "The 2009 Corton-Charlemagne is a striking wine graced with tons of finesse in its understated fruit and sweet, floral notes. It shows gorgeous persistence and plenty of aromatic lift in a layered, subtle style that is highly appealing...93-95" WA 09/11 "A muscular white, though not heavy or overwrought, this features apple, peach, lemon and mineral aromas and flavors. Vibrant acidity keeps the flavors focused as this shows harmony and class. Just needs time to settle down...94" WS 06/12

Lucien Le Moine is a small House of Grands Crus in Beaune. It is a two people operation established in1999: "we came here because of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, we stayed because we discovered "La Côte d'Or" and its wines but also the Burgundians as People and Friends. Lucien Le Moine is our way of living the seasons in Burgundy and growing roots deep into that beautiful place where we chose to live. Mounir learned and worked in a Trappist Monastery where he discovered Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. He studied Viticulture and Oenology at the ENSAM Montpellier, than had a 6 years experience in different Wineries in Burgundy, other areas of France and California where he became fascinated by the "old way" of growing, vinificating and aging wines. One day he decided to push to the extreme everything he saw and experienced and created, with Rotem, a small cellar dedicated to the ideas of purity and typicity. Rotem comes from a cheese making family. She learned Agriculture both at the Technion and the ENESAD in Dijon and oriented her studies towards wine. At the end of her title she won a national prize from the French Academy of Agriculture for a study on the Côte d'Or than she participated in many Harvests in Burgundy and California. She joined Mounir in 1999 and they Started Lucien Le Moine together. Read less

An almost invisible trace of wood highlights a similar nose of lactic aromas honeysuckle citrus and orchard fruit nuances that slide seamlessly into more obviously powerful medium full-bodied flavors that are at once generous yet detailed with excellent volume size and weight on the round naturally sweet and mouth coating finish. This is a big but impeccably well-balanced wine that delivers its power with control and grace. Don t miss! Burghound.
