LUCIEN LE MOINE

Gevrey-Chambertin "Les Cazetiers"

Premier Cru

Gevrey-Chambertin is the northernmost of the great communes of the Côte de Nuits; it covers 1,315 acres. There are 26 premiers crus in Gevrey occupying a total of 211 acres, and eight grands crus lying on a contiguous strip of 215 acres. Half of the premiers crus of Gevrey-Chambertin lie scattered around the perimeter of the grands crus; the other half occupy a steep, southeast-facing slope to the north, and are superior to the former by virtue of their exposition and calcareous clay soils.  Les Cazetiers is a 21 acre vineyard that faces almost due east.  Always one of Lucien Le Moine's exciting wines, it combines fantastic definition and complexity with richness.

"Les Cazetiers" is a 21 acre vineyard that faces almost due east.  Always one of Lucien Le Moine's exciting wines, it combines fantastic definition and complexity.  Mounir Saouma explains that the vines he uses are nearly 100 years old, and there is tremendous subtlety, spiciness and elegance.  It is the essence of Gevrey without the body, all finesse.
