Maison Lucien Le Moine

Founded in 1999, this small very high-end négociant house in the Côte d’Or has made a lot of noise in the world of elite Burgundy. Husband-and-wife... team Mounir and Rotem Saouma are committed to releasing no more than 100 barrels — or 2,500 cases — of wine each vintage, and they make only premier or grand cru Burgudny. For some time, Maison Lucien Le Moine grew no grapes, and it pressed no wine, but in 2006, the estate purchased 20 acres in Châteauneuf and Côtes du Rhône-Villages. Lucien Le Moine makes Burgundy in an idiosyncratic fashion — by raising barrels of grand and premier cru wines according to exacting standards of élévage that include lengthy time on augmented lees for whites or year-long undisturbed aging in amphorae for reds. Working closely with growers, Lucien Le Moine produces one to three barrels from each cru, and the crus shift with each vintage. Together, Mounir and Rotem do everything by hand, aging wines on their lees, never racking them, never using fining, filtration, additions or blending. Through this painstaking work, Lucien Le Moine has become, as Lucien has called it, “a library of Burgundy’s finest terroirs.”

About (Nicolas Potel) Maison Roche de Bellene

Nicolas Potel, son of the late, great vigneron Gérard Potel, who was director of the famed Pousse d'Or, founded his négoçiant... house Maison Nicolas Potel in 1996. However, in the early 2000s, Nicolas sold the négociant house, and he left shortly thereafter, thus losing the legal right to use his name for his business. By 2008, Nicolas had found both Domaine de Bellene, which bottles estate-grown wines, and Maison Roche de Bellene, which is a négociant house, both located in Beaune. At Maison Roche de Bellene, Nicolas concentrates on premier and grand cru wines that come from old or very old vines tended by trusted growers across Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits. Nicolas explores high quality, more affordable wines at Maison Roche de Bellene, and he has amassed a cult following of in-the-know Burgundy lovers with his terroir-driven red and white Burgundies.
