Hot Wine & 93 Points: Lucien Le Moine Bonnes Mares 2011  “Rich and bursting with sweet fruit, this exudes black cherry, black currant, violet and spice flavors. Firmly structured and long, with the fruit notes returning on the lingering aftertaste, accented by a touch of spice.”

Hot Wine & 93 Points: Lucien Le Moine Clos de la Roche 2011  “A dense version, boasting black cherry, raspberry, earth and spice flavors.  Lively acidity and well-integrated tannins keep this together as the finish reveals licorice and sandalwood accents.”

Lucien Le Moine Echezeaux 2011  “Smoky in aroma, with the flavors of cherry, currant and flowers enhanced by a layer of spice.  Forthcoming and open-knit, matching fine intensity to an elegant frame.”

Lucien Le Moine Pommard Les Epenots 2011  “Smoky and spicy, with buried cherry and berry flavors.  The tannins are assertive now, but all the pieces are in place, leading to a long finish. Needs time.”
