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.
Extremely reduced on the nose, which Saouma takes as a positive sign for this cuvée. Wild, rocky and powerful, with very sweet, flavors of pear oil and clove complemented by smoky minerality and framed by surprising lemony acidity. This Bâtard has the palate presence and tannic support of a red wine, finishing with extraordinary thickness and length.
