Lucien Le Moine Montrachet Grand Cru 2015
Score 100

Mind-blowing aromas of dried apples and dried mushrooms with hints of peat. Sicilian lemons, too. Full-bodied, dense and powerful. Yet, dry and vivid with a sense of muscle and dryness. Very tensioned and formed. Drink or hold. It’s a white for decades ahead.

The aromas of spices, thyme, redcurrants and fresh herbs. A big and powerful grand cru yet it shows such freshness and brightness. Layered and dense. Incredible depth and tenure. The power of Burgundy. Drink in 2022 but amazing to taste now.

Score 100

An incredible wine with tar, rose petals, wet earth and cherries. Decadent and wild. Full-bodied, dense and layered. Powerful and structured. Yet, silky and polished. A truly great wine. Shows peach undertones, too. Needs six to eight years to open up.

This is really an amazing white with such depth and density of fruit, which is well-layered and structured. Full-bodied and powerful. Truly amazing power and chewy mouthfeel. A white that is a grand cru red in stature and seriousness. Try in 2023.

Score 99

This phenomenal wine takes you to another place with its fruit, earth, sweet-tobacco and tea-leaf character. It has great structure but you don’t know where it is. A ethereal wine in every sense. Drink whenever you can get it.

A vibrant and electric wine with blackberries, gooseberries and blueberries. Full, tight and intense. It’s toned and muscular, giving you a whipping of fruit and tannins. Needs four or five years to soften.

This is like oysters, and it has dried-pear and apple character. Full body, bright acidity and vivid fruit. It’s so long and linear. Mineral and focused.
Lucien Le Moine Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets 2015
Score 94

A complex red that is tight and reserved yet it shows so much terra cotta and wet soil, which turns to salt and mineral. Full body and firm, silky tannins. Intense finish. Opens beautifully in the glass. Spicy. Drink in 2020.
Lucien Le Moine Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières 2015
Score 93

This is a very contrasty white with sliced-apple, pear and lime character on the nose and palate. Full body with sweet-tobacco, juniper and botanical undertones. It also has a very different set undertones such as sweet fruit and cream with fresh herb. Drink now.
