PRODUCER
The owners of stellar burgundy micro-négociant Lucien Le Moine have a side project: they have bought a number of vineyards in the Southern Rhône. The style is fascinating and unique – very much Châteauneuf viewed through the prism of burgundy. The flavours are of course those of Grenache (white or red), but structurally, in their combination of delicacy and power, there is more than a little of the Côte d’Or grand cru about these wines.

VINEYARD
This wine comes from a single two-hectare vineyard in Pignan, planted in 1942, and typically yielding just 250 cases.

WINERY
The whole clusters underwent 11-12 days of cold maceration at 8oC, without sulphur, and then fermented over the course of three weeks, with no physical intervention to increase extraction. The wine aged for three years on lees in 500-litre barrels, without racking, then was bottled unfined and unfiltered.

TASTE
A heady alliance of complexity and purity, this single-vineyard Châteauneuf offers a compelling account of a great terroir, with plum and raspberry fruit providing a sweet centre to the savoury notes of leather and rocks. Wonderfully expressive, layered, individual wine.

PRESS
“it offers up a glorious bouquet of wild strawberries, grilled bread, saddle leather, underbrush and licorice to go with a full-bodied, deep and layered feel on the palate. Gaining richness with air, this awesome wine should start to hit prime time in another 3-4 years and have 15-20 years of total longevity.”

“Shows the heady ripeness of the vintage, with a lush core of fig, boysenberry confiture and steeped plum fruit flavors, presenting a good spine of iron and violet notes. The finish lets smoldering charcoal and wood spice notes play out. A distinctive Châteauneuf, revealing a mix of Rhône and Burgundian elements.”
