Lucien Le Moine Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru 2016 (92 BH)
“Here too there is a touch of herbal tea character to the very ripe yet still attractively fresh liqueur-like nose of cassis, dark cherry and pretty floral notes and especially violet. The overtly muscular, rich and full-bodied flavors possess excellent punch though the built-to-age finish is somewhat drying today though at the same, there is noticeable gas. This is tough to read today but I prefer to remain conservative.”
Lucien Le Moine
Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru
Mounir thinks of Bonnes-Mares as the ambassador of all the Côte d’Or – taste 15 wines from the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits, and when you come to Bonnes-Mares it will have all the fruit, tannin, sweetness, and spice of the wines you just tasted. Because of its multi-dimensional power and beauty, Bonnes-Mares has become one of if not the signature wine from Lucien Le Moine.
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.
