Lucien Le Moine Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru “Les Genavrières” 2016 (93 BH)
“An overtly spicy nose speaks of plum, violet and dark cherry scents. The rich and sappy flavors possess a velvety palate impression yet despite the seductive mouth feel there is good underlying power, indeed the finish is almost robust yet it’s not rustic. Fine quality here.”
Lucien Le Moine
Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru “Les Genavrières”
The 1er Cru Genavrières is located on the highest part of the Clos de la Roche vineyard. The wine has both the body of the Clos de la Roche and the finesse of this high part of Morey St Denis. The vines here were once exclusively white, but have gradually been taken over by Pinot Noir. The site is very rocky, with a visibly high content of limestone in the soils.
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.
