Lucien le Moine Bâtard-Montrachet 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Batard-Montrachet is all about potential. Today it is impossibly raw, powerful and inward. Despite its unbridled power and sheer energy, the Batard possesses remarkable balance and purity.

Today, the Batard is a bit direct and frank, with little in the way of subtlety, but plenty of potential just the same...94-96" WA 8/12 "finished its alcoholic and malolactic fermentations in March of this year): Ripe peach, lime leaf, botanical herbs and salty soil tones on the nose. Broad-shouldered and hugely concentrated, with an almost solid impression of dry extract. Classic chewy, tactile, soil-driven wine framed by sound acidity. The dry, deep, slightly tannic finishing flavors are hard to scape off the palate. This endless wine should easily evolve for two decades or more in bottle...94-97" IWC 09/12

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
