LUCIEN LE MOINE

Richebourg

Grand Cru

The 20 acre Richebourg vineyard sits just up-slope from Romanée-St-Vivant and north of Romanée-Conti.  Indisputably one of the great red Burgundy sites, the power and complexity of the Richebourgs made by Lucien Le Moine has been dazzling.  Mounir says that the essence of Richebourg can be boiled down to a dual personality: one side viscous and animal, the other side fruity crème de cassis.  It is a Grand Cru because it shows you two complicated things; it is both big and fine; it can be both vulgar and classic.  A deep, savage and fruity wine.
