I am at Vinexpo in Bordeaux with Jorald Julie, Assistant Chief Sommelier at Constance Le Prince Maurice, and Sathia Rau sommelier at Constance Ephélia.

Lucien Le Moine Winery

We had very nice tasting at Lucien Le Moine Winery with Rotem and Mounir Saouma.

They bought two hectares in Chateauneuf du Pape area in 2009 and are showing their wines for the first time: 2009/2010/2011 white and red.

These are spectacular wines…. it’s one of the most exciting tastings.

The white comes from Grenache white and Clairette and they are like a burgundy white.

Barrel fermented, they lie for 2 years, depending on the wines These wines are fresh with a beautiful balance – certainly, one of the top white wines coming from Chateauneuf du Pape.

Red Chateauneuf du Pape. 2009 is their first vintage. The wine is great with Garrigues notes which we find most of the time in Chateauneuf.

The 2010 is wonderful, complex and looks like a vosne romanee but made with Grenache noir.
