LUCIEN LE MOINE

Charmes-Chambertin

Grand Cru

As the name suggests, wines from this vineyard are full of charm - beautiful aromatics and weight.  The vineyard is near Mazis, but Mounir has used different parts of the vineyard, from both Charmes or Mazoyères; so sometimes his fruit comes from the heart of the Gevrey Grand Crus and sometimes it is almost in Morey-St-Denis where there can be an influence of sand and iron in the soil.  Mounir looks for the "charm" in Charmes-Chambertin - a wine with sweetness, fruit, spice, chocolate notes.  He feels it is at its best when it is attractive and approachable.
