LUCIEN LE MOINE

2nd May 2014 News

The International Wine Cellar just published the results of Executive Wine Seminars’ “2009 Red Burgundies: The Grand Crus”.  Wines were poured in 3 flights, with participants voting for their top 3 wines across all flights. Of the 21 attendees, the unanimous favorite and runaway first-place winner was Lucien Le Moine’s 2009 Bonnes Mares with 50 points and a 98+ rating!


The tasting note:

“Fairly light color.  Hauntingly beautiful aromas remind us of black cherry, black raspberry, licorice, cola syrup, sassafras, root beer, minerals and spice.  Sweet and seductive in the mouth; the hedonists are in heaven!  This is a flat-out delicious wine that finds us riveted in our seats in awe.  It’s a complex 2009 with a strong sense of terroir and dancing minerals.  The fruit here is special.  Moderate tannins and firm structure suggest that #8 will age well.  Spectacular, extra-long spicy finish.  Everyone LOVED this wine, the runaway first-place winner!”
