Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru, which is blended with Mazoyères, has a precise, stony, wild hedgerow-scented bouquet that unfolds with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with sorbet-like freshness on the entry - such an animated Charmes-Chambertin in the making. There is impressive weight here but it retains superb finesse on the fig-tinged finish. This is a consummate Charmes-Chambertin.
Barrel Sample: 93-95
WS 94
Wine Spectator
This is bright and pure, with a vivid structure, featuring cherry, strawberry, floral, spice and stone flavors. Firm, lingering with mineral and spice accents on the finish. Shows excellent potential. Best from 2019 through 2033. 10 cases imported.
BH 94
Burghound.com
A beautifully complex nose combines notes of the sauvage, underbrush, green tea, earth and a whiff of smoked meat character. The rich and full-bodied flavors possess fine mid-palate concentration as well as solid delineation before culminating in a rustic, mouth coating and impressively persistent finish that possess an almost chewy texture. Once again, patience is a prerequisite.

Lucien Le Moine Owners Mounir and Rotem  Winery Image

Lucien Le Moine is a small House of Grands Crus in the Beaune region of France. The winery is a two person operation established in1999. Mounir learned and worked in a Trappist Monastery where he discovered Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. He studied Viticulture and Oenology at the ENSAM Montpellier, then had 6 years experience in different wineries in Burgundy, other areas of France and California where he became fascinated by the "old way" of growing, vinificating and aging wines. One day he decided to push to the extreme everything he saw and experienced and created, with Rotem, a small cellar dedicated to the ideas of purity and typicity.

Rotem comes from a cheese making family. She learned Agriculture both at the Technion and the ENESAD in Dijon and oriented her studies toward wine. She won a national prize from the French Academy of Agriculture for a study on the Côte d'Or than she participated in many Harvests in Burgundy and California. She joined Mounir in 1999 and started Lucien Le Moine together.

Having studied, lived and worked in Burgundy for several years the duo got to know many good growers in the region. They decided to merge these relations and devotion to quality in a small selected production of Crus.

Lucien Le Moine produces only Grands and Premiers Crus from Côte d'Or.

Gevrey-Chambertin Wine

Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

View all products

This small village is home to the Grands Crus in the farthest northerly stretches of Côte de Nuits and is famous for some of the deepest and firmest Burgundian Pinot Noir.

Gevrey boasts nine Grands Crus, the best of which are arguably Le Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. As with all of the fragmented vineyards of Burgundy, it isn’t easy to differentiate between the two, which are situated adjacent with Clos de Bèze slightly further up the hill than Le Chambertin. Clos de Bèze has a shallower soil and if you’re really counting, may produce wines less intense but more likely to charm. Some compare Le Chambertin in both power and plentitude only to the prized Romanée-Conti Grand Cru farther south in Vosne-Romanée.

Two other Grands Crus vineyards, Mazis-Chambertin (also written Mazy-) and Latricières-Chambertin command almost as much regard as Le Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. The upper part of Mazy, called Les Mazis Haut is the best and Latricières-Chambertin offers an abundance of juicy fruit and a silky texture in the warmer vintages.

Other Grands Crus are Ruchottes-Chambertin, Charmes-Chambertin, Mazoyères-Chambertin, Griotte-Chambertin and Chapelle-Chambertin.

The most respected Pinot Noir wines from Gevrey-Chambertin are robust and powerful but at the same time, velvety and expressive: black fruit, black liquorice and chocolate come into play. After some time in the bottle, the wines are harmonious with bright and sometimes candied fruit, and aromas of musk, truffle and forest floor. These have staying power.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
