Lucien Le Moine Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru “Les Cazetiers” 2016 (94 VM)

“Slightly cloudy appearance. Classic, pure Genevrières scents of lemon, lime, tangerine and ginger. At once large-scaled and sharply focused, with its dusty citrus zest, spice and anise flavors communicating a strong impression of soil. For all its inner-mouth tension, this fruit was not harvested particularly early, according to Saouma. Finishes spicy, youthful and long.”

    Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru “Les Cazetiers”

    Les Cazetiers is a 21 acre vineyard that faces almost due east. Always one of Lucien Le Moine’s exciting wines, it combines fantastic definition and complexity. Mounir Saouma explains that the vines he uses are nearly 100 years old, and there is tremendous subtlety, spiciness and elegance. It is the essence of Gevrey without the body, all finesse.
