Lucien Le Moine is an "haute-couture" merchant-breeder's house created by Mounir Saouma and Rotem Brakin, a couple of Lebanese origins. After a visit to a monastery and a first approach to the art of making wine, then enology studies, he created his structure in 1999 with the aim of offering wines from the most beautiful terroirs. The name of the house comes from the nickname that his comrades gave him following his education in the Cistercian cloister: "The Monk". Lucien was the name the monks had given him. Today, it produces 38 different wines, from villages to fine wines. Vinification and breeding are very precise and well done, as delicately and naturally as possible.
Green-tinged yellow. Very ripe aromas of apple, orange peel soaked in sugar, and spices, enlivened by white pepper and a positive vegetal nuance, one smells the humidity of the west side of the hill but also feels the grape skins. At once sappy and weightless, with its seamless soft citrus and complex spice flavors energized by active limestone. Really splendid focus and inner-mouth tension here. The rising, unflagging finish is utterly pristine, with the energy of the underlying limestone giving razor-sharp clarity to the exotic spice and orange notes. This sappy yet weightless Corton-Charlemagne boasts great finesse and purity: one can feel the freshness of the mother rock.
