Lucien le Moine Meursault les Perrières 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Emerges from the glass with flint, crushed rocks, pears and smoke. This is pure Perrieres from its cool, inwardness all the way through to the long, crystalline finish. Everything simply comes together in the glass. The 2010 Perrieres is a wine to savor over what will hopefully be a long life. Today, it is a bit restrained. The only thing missing is time...93-95" WA 8/12 "Orange blossom and almond flower on the inviting nose. Large-scaled, plush and sweet, with an almost exotic quality to its soft citrus fruits. Really clamps down on the palate on the back half, with penetrating rocky, iodiney minerality providing great detail and class. A palate-saturating wine of great solidity, finishing firm-edged with a suggestion of baked bread. This shut down dramatically in the glass...92-95" 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
