Lucien le Moine Pommard 1er cru ‘Les Rugiens’ 2016 – Bourgogne – Pommard

Mounir Saouma and Rotem Brakin have launched this small house dedicated entirely to the first and grand cru of Burgundy. They set their maximum production at 100 pieces per year to be able to do things “by hand” and with the utmost precision. The production is based on the terroir and the characteristics of each vintage. The result is an impressive palette of premier cru and grand cru with insignificant doses of sulfur, a millimetered ageing an a tailored production. The name ‘Les rugiens’ comes directly from the soil, which is of a red and frank color. A particular land that gives a particular premier cru. This Pommard has a bright, shiny ruby color. It has a shift between the bouquet that is soft, with delicate aromas of subtle red fruits and the rather explosive, robust and earthy palate. A pleasant surprise that lingers elegantly towards a layered finale filled with finesse and sophistication.
