About

About The Wine

Nuit St George is hallowed turf for lovers of expressive Pinot Noirs with both finesse and concentration.

For this cuvee Mounir travels to the northern part of the vineyards between Vosne Romanée and Nuits Saint Georges for this small Premier Cru. It's a wine of great depth and structure, a stone's throw from Vosne Romanée where wines fetch considerably higher price tags.

In the context of this portion of the Côte de Nuits, this offers excellent quality for the price.

Stylistically, you get a comparable level of intensity and minerality as Vosne-Romanée Malconsorts 1er Cru. It's a wine with great ageing potential that will evolve gracefully for the next two decades or more.

About Lucien Le Moine

Lucien Le Moine is a partnership between husband and wife team of Mounir and Rotem Saouma.

Theirs has been one of the most talked about negociant operations on the modern Cote D'Or. They actively source parcels from the finest Premier and Grand Cru vineyards up and down Burgundy.

Winemaking wise, they have been touted as one of the benchmark 'modernist producers', however, Mounir believes that his long, slow elevages and minimal use of sulphur harken back to the Burgundy production of an era gone by.

On their operation, Jancis Robinson wrote, "An extraordinary micro negociant in Beaune. Very serious quality." These are powerful, complex wines of imposing quality and stature.

Critic Reviews

94Points
Burghound

91 - 94 points - Outstanding "A very ripe yet still agreeably fresh nose features notes of warm earth, poached plum, mocha and cassis. There is excellent richness to the solidly concentrated and well-detailed flavors that possess a sleek mouth feel despite the presence of plenty of taut muscularity, all wrapped in an austere and serious finish that is impressively complex and persistent. This is not as concentrated as the Vaucrains but it's every bit as structured." - Allen Meadows (Burghound)

How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
