Lucien Le Moine Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru 2016 (97 WS)
“This red is saturated with cherry, raspberry, floral, mineral and spice aromas and flavors. Shows depth, with a core of sweet fruit that builds on the palate. Sandalwood and licorice accents emerge as this expands on the long, complex aftertaste.”
Lucien Le Moine
Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru
Mounir thinks of Bonnes-Mares as the ambassador of all the Côte d’Or – taste 15 wines from the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits, and when you come to Bonnes-Mares it will have all the fruit, tannin, sweetness, and spice of the wines you just tasted. Because of its multi-dimensional power and beauty, Bonnes-Mares has become one of if not the signature wine from Lucien Le Moine.
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.
