Lucien Le Moine 2008 whites show unbelievably in the August 31 issue of the Wine Spectator. Reviews are below, and you can find a listing here of the rarefied company that Le Moine keeps.
Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet 2008 :
“A white of terrific power and density, yet stays graceful and harmonious. The honey-suckle, lemon cake, peach and mineral flavors are accented by spice, all driven by the vivid structure. The aftertaste is long and expansive, featuring citrus,spice and mineral notes. Very complex and refined. 8 cases imported ” 97 points Wine Spectator
Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatieres 2008:
“ An extrovert, this white is powerful and complex, offering lemon, apple tart, toasted hazelnut and oak spice aromas and flavors. Turns more elegant as it crosses the finish line, lingering with spice and mineral notes. 24 cases imported.” 93 points Wine Spectator
Meursault Perrieres 2008 :
“A smoky white, yet full of floral, juniper, lime, toasted hazelnut and mineral aromas and flavors. Lean, toned and very complex, with a long aftertaste of lime, smoke and jasmine tea. There’s lovely harmony, though this needs time. 20 cases imported ” 94 points Wine Spectator
