Lucien Le Moine Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru “Les Hauts Doix” 2016 (93 BH)
“Whiffs of raspberry, red currant and cherry enjoy added breadth in the form of spice, floral and orange pekoe tea. The much sleeker and more refined if substantially less powerful and muscular flavors possess a lacy mouth feel that carries over to the youthfully austere finale. This is very Chambolle in style.”
Lucien Le Moine
Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru “Les Hauts Doix”
Les Haut Doix is a small vineyard between Les Charmes and Les Amoureuses. It sits within Les Amoureuses before the road to Les Charmes, but the wines show more acidity and fresh fruit than Les Amoureuses. It is crisper, less spicy, with fruit that is less ripe in character than Les Amoureuses. There is less drainage in this vineyard, and the soil is more viscous.
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.
