Lucien Le Moine Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2016 (94 VM)
“Good medium ruby. Brooding aromas of medicinal black cherry and bitter chocolate complicated by a spicy element. Very dense, concentrated and savory, conveying grand cru depth of texture and subtle sweetness but still quite primary and even a bit stunted today. Finishes with surprisingly suave tannins and a building spiciness.”
Lucien Le Moine
Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru
As the name suggests, wines from this vineyard are full of charm - beautiful aromatics and weight. Mounir looks for the “charm” in Charmes-Chambertin - a wine with sweetness, fruit, spice, chocolate notes. He feels it is at its best when it is attractive and approachable.
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.
