LUCIEN LE MOINE

Clos Saint Denis

Grand Cru

 

The soils of Clos Saint Denis are very drained, and the fruit achieves a lot of ripeness and flavor.  Mounir calls this a humiliating wine, because your first impression is of a wine that is full of earthy, dirty notes, but when it emerges after time to breathe, or with age, it displays sweet red fruits and a sweet finish.  The soil here is rich in iron and phosphorous, giving this wine a contrast between dirty and sweet.
