Lucien le Moine Bonnes Mares 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Sweet floral notes, menthol and spices are woven together on the effortless, gracious finish...95-97" WA 2/12 "Good bright, deep red. Black cherry, red berries, mocha, minerals and menthol on the nose. Fat, sweet and rich; at once extremely primary and utterly seamless in the mid-palate, with a sappy crushed black cherry flavor dominating. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins and terrific chewy persistence...93-96" IWC 1/12 "An exquisitely fresh and pure but shy and almost delicate nose of rose petal, stone and kirsch nuances introduces extraordinarily finely detailed flavors that are also supported by wonderfully refined tannins. The balanced and harmonious finish displays controlled power and excellent focus that includes huge persistence yet all of this punch and vitality is delivered in a completely understated fashion. Sheer class...93-96" BH 04/12

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
