Lucien Le Moine Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru 2016 (96 BH)
“Exuberantly spicy liqueur-like aromas of cassis, dark cherry and plenty of floral elements introduce the succulent, round and seductive, even opulent imposingly-scaled flavors coat the palate with dry extract while a subtle minerality adds a bit of lift to the stunningly persistent finish. This very classy effort is balanced and beautifully complex and while it should reward long-term cellaring, it should also be approachable after 7 to 8 years if desired.”
Lucien Le Moine
Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru
A vineyard sitting between Mazis-Chambertin and Chambertin, Chambertin-Clos de Bèze is on the same limestone as Montrachet - you can almost think of it as a wine from Chassagne, a white wine with red color. It has almost an essence on the palate, it is supple, long, and without a lot of body or tannin. A sublime wine.
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.
