Lucien Le Moine Puligny-Montrachet 1er “Champ Canet” 2016 (93 VM)
“More expressive on the nose than the Chalumeaux, with a note of lemon drop suggesting good fruit sweetness. Then a bit syrupy on the palate, but with lovely focus and definition to its flavors of white peach, crushed stone, white pepper and spices. This wine delivers more inner-mouth tension than the Chalumeaux and Hameau de Blagny and finishes with excellent mineral-driven length.”

Puligny-Montrachet 1er “Champ Canet”
Mounir describes Champ Canet as a frustrated Puligny. It has a lot of vivacity, it is racy and salty, influenced strongly by Meursault. You can think of it almost as a Meursault Perrieres in Puligny.
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.
