Lucien Le Moine Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru 2016 (98 VM)
“Bright lemon-yellow. Bright, pure, reticent aromas of citrus zest, flowers and crushed rock. Pristine and penetrating on the palate, with a sexy touch of sweetness countered by pungent minerality. Conveys an impression of extract-rich solidity with great energy and definition. The almost painful whiplash of a finish boasts razor-sharp focus and great sappy lift. A real essence of Chevalier-Montrachet–and one of the longest 2016s I tried on my late-spring visit.”
Lucien Le Moine
Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru
The gentleman, as Mounir calls Chevalier-Montrachet, a wine that always shows lovely definition and everything in place; classic grace.
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.
