Product Overview

In just a few years Maison Lucien Le Moine has gathered astonishing accolades, and Mounir Saouma has become the brightest young star in Burgundy. Mounir limits production of his wines, typically working with only one wine per grower. The selected lots arrive, barrel-by-barrel, at the Le Moine cellars in Beaune. Transferred to specially coopered Seguin-Moreau barrels (80% with oak from the tight-grained forest of Jupilles, 20% from Tronçais) for their malolactic fermentation, the wines remain on their lees throughout the aging process. During this period, they are never mechanically pumped but moved only by gravity flow. Each wine is bottled by hand, using gravity, barrel-by-barrel, without fining, filtration, racking or the addition of sulphur.

International Wine Cellarage (IWC) Review

IWC 91-94
Red-ruby. Full-blown, somewhat sauvage nose offers small wild red berries, leather, mocha and smoked meat. Round, broad and compellingly soft and sweet for young Echezeaux, with distinctly wild flavors of red cherry and leather. This has a viscosity of texture that should give it relatively early appeal in the context of these grand crus.-Stephen Tanzer

Wine Spectactor (WS) Review

WS 94
Civilized for the appellation, with concentrated black cherry, plum and mineral aromas and flavors. It's vibrant, with thick, ripe tannins that lift the fruit. Terrific length and expression, with a lingering aftertaste of black olive and wild herbs. Best from 2015 through 2040. 50 cases made. –BS
