Lucien Le Moine Clos de la Roche Grand Cru 2016 (95 BH)
“Firm reduction dominates the fruit today. Otherwise there is exceptionally good volume and richness to the powerful and concentrated big-bodied flavors that evidence moderate rusticity on the very firm but notably more complex finale. This beauty is also going to require extended patience if you wish to see it at its apogee.”
Lucien Le Moine
Clos de la Roche Grand Cru
Clos de la Roche lies on an easterly-exposed slope at the northern end of Morey-Saint-Denis, divided by the road leading to Gevrey-Chambertin, and shares some of the nuances associated with the grands crus of the commune. It is divided into eight parcels totalling 41.75 acres.
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.
