This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

Lucien Le Moine tasting

Lucien Le Moine tasting hosted by Hong Kong Wine Vault.  Mounir Saouma was here, but I only saw him as he was walking out.

2012 Lucien Le Moine Pommard 1er Cru Les Epenots - nose was very fragrant and open, sweet, almost caramel, with a little bit of forest notes.

2012 Lucien Le Moine Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Vaucrains - bigger nose than the Pommard, a little more pungent, with toasty oak, mocha, chocolate, forest pine, and sweet fruit on the nose.

2012 Lucien Le Moine Clos de Vougeot - black fruits, a little spicy and minty.  Very nice.

2010 Clos Saouma Châteauneuf-du-Pape Arioso - pungent nose of burnt rubber.  Some fruit here, and still got some tannins here.

2012 Lucien Le Moine Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières - lots of toasty oak on the nose, with citrus notes.  A little ripe on the palate but good acidity.  Very nice.

2012 Lucien Le Moine Corton Blanc - really big nose of toast.  Beautiful and complex, with lemon citrus notes.  Definitely ripe on the palate.
