LUCIEN LE MOINE

20 September 2013 News

Antonio Galloni sat for lunch at Bistro de l’Hotel in Beaune, France, where he enjoyed white asparagus and vinaigrette with Lucien Le Moine’s 2010 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières – pas mal, as they say! With a 94+ score, his tasting notes are as follows – “The wine really should have been decanted, as it needed several hours to open up, but what a wine! Rich, explosive and layered, the 2010 burst out of the glass with a head spinning mélange of exotic aromas and flavors. The intense Genevrières minerality actually worked beautifully with the asparagus. Now I know what pairs well with one of the greatest enemies of wine at the dinner table. Too bad Genevrières isn’t the kind of everyday wine one can drink whenever the mood strikes!”  To read more about his lunch in Burgundy click here.
