Lucien Le Moine Beaune 1er Cru “Le Clos des Mouches” Rouge 2016 (92 VM)
“Healthy medium-deep red. Expressive aromas of red and black cherry and flowers convey the site’s high altitude. Juicy and sharply delineated, with its medicinal flavors of black cherry and bitter chocolate lifted by an element of crisp limestone. Offers classic Burgundian energy and more definition than the Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot. Finishes with firm tannins and a note of licorice. Lacks only a bit of length for an even higher score.”

Beaune 1er Cru “Le Clos des Mouches” Rouge
In two decades of work, Lucien Le Moine has become one of the most talked about Burgundy producers, making some of the most sought after wines from the region. The approach is extreme – two people, together doing everything by hand, working with a dazzling array of Burgundy’s great terroirs.
