Puligny Montrachet Folatieres Lucien le Moine 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Bright pale color. Brilliantly pure aromas of lemon oil and white flowers. Rich and silky, with outstanding complexity--and a slight viognier-like quality--to its flavors of pineapple, apricot, melon, lichee and salty oyster shell. This has more body than most Puligny examples from this vintage, but the youthfully bitter-edged finish delivers strong soil tones. Mounir Saouma believes that Puligny-Montrachet was the favored white wine appellation in 2009...92-94" IWC 09/11

Lucien Le Moine is a small House of Grands Crus in Beaune. It is a two people operation established in1999: "we came here because of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, we stayed because we discovered "La Côte d'Or" and its wines but also the Burgundians as People and Friends. Lucien Le Moine is our way of living the seasons in Burgundy and growing roots deep into that beautiful place where we chose to live. Mounir learned and worked in a Trappist Monastery where he discovered Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. He studied Viticulture and Oenology at the ENSAM Montpellier, than had a 6 years experience in different Wineries in Burgundy, other areas of France and California where he became fascinated by the "old way" of growing, vinificating and aging wines. One day he decided to push to the extreme everything he saw and experienced and created, with Rotem, a small cellar dedicated to the ideas of purity and typicity. Rotem comes from a cheese making family. She learned Agriculture both at the Technion and the ENESAD in Dijon and oriented her studies towards wine. At the end of her title she won a national prize from the French Academy of Agriculture for a study on the Côte d'Or than she participated in many Harvests in Burgundy and California. She joined Mounir in 1999 and they Started Lucien Le Moine together. Read less

This is quite ripe for the appellation though there are no hints of surmaturité to the aromas of apricot, white peach, pear and wet stone notes that carry over to the rich if moderately austere flavors, all wrapped in a complex, long and impressively...

The 2009 Bienvenues-Batard-Montrachet is an intense wine laced with tropical fruit spices and mineral notes. It is a spherical Burgundy that fleshes out in all directions with seemingly endless dimensions to its fruit. A superb finely-textured finish rounds out this jewel of a wine. Anticipated maturity: 2014+. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
