Lucien Le Moine Clos de la Roche Grand Cru 2016 (96 VM)
“Bright ruby-red. Knockout nose combines black raspberry, brown spices, fresh blood, game and crushed-stone minerality. Similarly wild on the palate, and surprisingly expressive for young Clos de la Roche, displaying a very smooth texture and superb inner-mouth energy. Finishes classy, rich and very long, with terrific detail and compelling sucrosité.”

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.
