Lucien Le Moine Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru “Les Baudes” 2016 (94 VM)
“Healthy red-ruby color. Soil-driven aromas of black raspberry, smoky minerals, wild herbs and pungent black licorice. Then dense and deep but relaxed, with a Chambolle fluidity of texture supported by a firm mineral underpinning. A bit like a softer Bonnes-Mares. This utterly seamless, sedate wine finishes with lovely breadth and nicely buffered tannins. Mounir finds that most of his Chambolles are rather fat in 2016, and he believes that “the wines will make themselves later than the Gevrey-Chambertins.”

Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru “Les Baudes”
Lying just under Bonnes-Mares, Les Baudes shows a more structured and powerful side of Chambolle-Musigny.
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.
