Lucien le Moine Clos Vougeot 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Clos de Vougeot is a big wine bursting with animal-like raw power. Huge scents of dark fruit, leather, licorice and spices saturate the palate as this intense wine shows off its unique personality...92-94" WA 2/12 "Medium red. Reticent aromas of redcurrant and pepper. Rich and chewy, but with a slightly rougher texture and more obvious tannins than the grand crus from Gevrey. Red fruit and saline soil tones take on a youthful medicinal toughness on the back end...90-93" IWC 1/12 "Reduction dominates the nose but here it seems evident that the fruit beneath the funk is quite ripe. There is excellent volume and richness to the big-bodied flavors that enjoy supporting structural elements that are also phenolically mature before terminating in an austere, powerful and impressively long finish. This is admirably pure and really quite fine, at least within the context of a youthful Clos de Vougeot, an appellation not known for finesse...93-95" 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
