2016 Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot Lucien Le Moine Burgundy White

St Barth’s Wine


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. 

Bright yellow. Aromas of spices, coconut and crème brûlée au citron put me in mind of a mini-Chevalier-Montrachet. At once creamy and zesty on the palate, delivering a subtle earthy complexity lifted by lime blossom. The wine's compelling density and almost syrupy thickness are countered by pungent treble notes. Finishes very dry and classic, with shocking freshness and floral lift.
