Lucien Le Moine Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru 2017

Griotte-Chambertin is one of the most elusive Grand Crus in Burgundy; it’s the smallest Grand Cru in Gevrey at only 3 hectares in size. The vineyard faces north-east, which means the vines are not fully exposed to the morning sunshine – this contributes to the fresher, less masculine style of its wines.

Griotte-Chambertin is one of the most elusive Grand Crus in Burgundy; it’s the smallest Grand Cru in Gevrey at only 3 hectares in size. The vineyard faces north-east, which means the vines are not fully exposed to the morning sunshine – this contributes to the fresher, less masculine style of its wines.

“Healthy dark red-ruby. Dark, rather subdued nose shows more soil and limestone character than primary fruits, but an element of violet emerged with air. Dense and lively, with its chalky energy accentuated by an element of white pepper. The wine’s dark fruit flavors are a bit brooding today and not yet in harmony with its minerality and saline tension. Best today on the very pure, spicy, long finish, which features firm, classy tannins and noteworthy verve.”

“This is restrained to the point of being almost timid yet it is also exceptionally pretty with a really lovely nose of red and dark currant, earth and a hint of spicy tea. There is fine richness to the beautifully textured and intense medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a very serious, dusty, mouth coating and quite firmly structured finish that is presently markedly austere but not hard. This is also going to require an extended snooze in a cool cellar.”
