A superb range of highly rated wines

 

We've been so caught up with the 2010 vintage that we have forgotten about the pleasures of 2009. 2009 has provided some of the best Burgundies of the 2000's - wines with power, intensity and complexity. Wines that drink well young but have the extract to age well. In fact, over the last six months, the more serious wines have tightened up with more structure coming to the fore.

 

Established in 1999 by Mounir and Rotem Saouma, Lucien Le Moine has rapidly risen to the top echelon. 

 

No fewer than 8 Lucien Le Moine reds were included in Burghound's 42 "Don't Miss" Wines from the 2009 vintage in Issue 42. That is a remarkable result by anyone's standards.

 

Praise for the wines of Lucien Le Moine is both frequent and consistant. This is one name serious Burgundy drinkers should have on their shopping list!

 

Le Moine Bottle BlackEach year Mounir aims to produce a maximum of 100 barrels of Burgundy from the very best vineyards of the Cote d'Or. A maximum of 3 barrels of each wine is produced but with some 60 different cuvees a single barrel is all that is produced for most wines. The list of appellations reds like a who's who of great Burgundy. Richebourg, Grands Echezeaux, Chambertin, Romanee-St-Vivant, Montrachet, Bonnes-Mares - they all come from the Le Moine cellar.

 

The 2009 Le Moine wines received outstanding reviews by all the major wine writers. Our website features notes from Tanzer, Burghound and eRobertParker.com. One thing we note is the consistant high scores for both Grand Cru and Premier Crus.

 

We have a fine selection of 23 different reds and whites in stock. Many are very low.

Fancy a little Chevalier-Montrachet?

  Jean-Marc Pillot Chevalier
Domaine Jean-Marc Pillot 2004 Chevalier-Montrachet
Just $299.00
  
Everyone I know loves a little Chevalier-Montrachet. It is a great vineyard that always combines finesse and power and a memorable long finish.
This wine from Domaine Jean-Marc Pillot is a beauty.
Burghound: As pure, refined, classy and elegant as the Caillerets is, this particular Chevalier goes it one better if only slightly with an understated and gorgeously stylish nose of simply astonishing complexity and nuance that continues onto the stunningly intense and finely detailed flavors that possess an enveloping palate impression, all wrapped in a saliva-inducing finish that doesn't quit. There is currently a background hint of toast on the finish but otherwise, this is seriously impressive juice. 92-94 Points
