Lucien Le Moine Corton Renardes Grand Cru 2016
“Reduction rules the fruit today. Otherwise there is an intense minerality that suffuses the powerful and extract-rich broad-shouldered flavors that are muscular and overtly rustic before terminating in a focused, balanced and linear finish. This bad boy Corton is fashioned in a ‘take no prisoners’ style and will need extended cellaring.”

Corton Renardes Grand Cru
Corton Renardes displays the sweet side of Corton, as opposed to Corton Bressandes. It has more viscosity, more tannin, color and sweetness than Bressandes. It is both an easier wine to understand that Corton Bresandes, and more immediately attractive.
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.
