A beautifully well-layered nose features notes of spice, earth and smoke on the ripe and cool red pinot, dark currant and plum suffused aromas. There is fine detail and a palpable sense of energy to the robust, muscular and firm medium weight plus flavors that avoid any sense of rusticity on the balanced and impressively persistent finish where a touch of wood surfaces. This should be excellent in due time. Tasted: Apr 15, 2013. Drink: 2023+

The 2011 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru has a pure bouquet of blackberry, boysenberry, cold stone and bay leaf that is very well-defined. The palate is structured and tightly wound, almost aloof at the moment, but there is certainly very good depth and harmony with a long, persistent yet somehow weightless finish. This is another impressive 2011 from Lucien Le Moine. Drink 2017-2035. ||Prior to launching into Maison Lucien de Moine’s 2012 reds with irrepressible winemaker Mounir Saouma, we revisited some of his 2011s that are now in bottle. To recap, Mounir is one of the last Burgundy producers to bottle his wines, since he is a great believer in extended elevage. There is a clutch of outstanding wines in this vintage, particularly at the grand cru level, where one must admire the consistency across the board. As always, readers are reminded that Lucien Le Moine’s wines are made in a stringently reductive method, therefore they always need more decanting time than other growers. eRobertParker.com.April, 2014
