Lucien Le Moine Echezeaux 2017/ #11964096
Lucien Le Moine is an unusual producer as they act as négociant and buy wines just as they have been produced and then store themselves to perferction. They have no contracts with the farmers and travel to hundreds of producers in Bourgogne and after a handshake they get to buy the best wines ti stire in their iwn cellar in beaune
och köper vinerna direkt när de är nyjästa för att sedan själv lagra dem till perfektion i sin kalla vinkällare i Beaune. Inte heller har man några kontrakt med odlarna.
An overtly floral and well-layered nose is elegant, airy and pure with plenty of spice elements adding breadth to the super-fresh essence of red currant aromas that are trimmed in discreet oak nuances. There is notably more size, weight and power to the tautly muscular flavors that culminate in a serious, robust and lingering finish. This is not a monster of concentration but I like the balance and overall sense of harmony.

There are Echezeaux wines that are light and ethereal. This is not one of them. Mounir and Rotem Saouma (owners of Lucien) offer a deep, dark, mysterious grand cru. What complications of gaminess and smoke the wine presents at first resolve to complexities by the second day the bottle is open, its detail just beginning to unfold. The wine’s depth of fruit expands on its satin texture, still lovely, rich and intoxicating five days out. If Lucien Le Moine’s premier cru wines often rise to grand-cru stature, what is left to say about the stature of this grand cru?
Two bottles are included even though the pictures are on one of them.
