- “Some of the most compelling wines in Burgundy” - Galloni
- Aged on full lees for up to 2 years – very rare
- Expressive, exotic, deep flavoured wines
Lucien le Moine’s (The Enlightened Monk) seems to so often be labelled a 'modernist' due to his long elevage technique, lack of sulphur use and no racking hence a lot of work with the lees. In fact, as he says himself its "as traditional as it gets" given the winemaking history of Burgundy. His cellar gets very cold during Winter preventing the normal malolactic fermentation extending the elevage which he passionately believes give the soul to the end product.
“Has a typical, stony, quite austere bouquet that unfolds with subtle orange-blossom scents. The palate is fresh on the entry with a fine line of acidity and tremendous salinity on the finish that brings to mind a wild coastline. Wow - this is one of the best Meursault Perrières of the vintage. Seek this out if you can” – 94 points – Robert Parker
