Lucien Le Moine is working with Clos de Vougeot with a theory that stands a bit opposite to conventional thinking. Most people believe the mid and upper slopes of Clos de Vougeot are the best. Since 2006 Lucien Le Moine has worked with parcels from the top, mid and bottom of the vineyard. Mounir believes this expression has given his Clos de Vougeot proper balance - in early vintages, when he just included mid and upper slope fruit in the wine, the power of the wine was not in balance with its other elements. The last several vintages this has been one of our favorite Lucien Le Moine wines, a wine of absolute class.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru is one of Mounir's finest wines this year. Sourced from around the famous walled vineyard, it has a cohesive bouquet with straight-laced brambly red berry fruit that are very well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with strict crisp tannin, very good acidity and lovely poise on the sustained finish. If you seek an elegant Clos Vougeot than this will be the ticket.
