Lucien Le Mone Grands Échezeaux Grand Cru 2016 (95 VM)

“Full, bright ruby. Higher-toned and considerably more expressive on the nose than the Echézeaux, offering aromas of black raspberry, licorice and violet along with suggestions of more exotic ripeness. Densely packed and seriously concentrated, but a bit youthfully imploded owing to its crushed-rock minerality; conveys a strong impression of dry extract but little early sweetness. As young as this wine is, it’s much more harmonious today than the Echézeaux. Finishes very long, with serious but fine-grained tannins.”

    Grands Échezeaux Grand Cru

    Grands Échézeaux is a 23 acre vineyard, one that only recently Lucien Le Moine has started working with to produce wines that show unusual subtlety and harmony. Mounir describes Grands Échézeaux 22 as the “Les Amoureuses” of Vosne. It sits between Échézeaux and Clos de Vougeot, which are big and tannic, but Grands Échézeaux is very balanced and straight – nothing is exaggerated.
