About The Wine

Not many folks can say Bonnes Mares is their calling card, but Mounir and Rotem Saouma don’t sully their cellars with just any old Burgundy.

With such remarkable purity, this Grand Cru vineyard is a consistent favourite of this exceptional couple.

2017 is a vibrant beauty, vivacious with its sweet spiced red fruit and finesse.

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.

Additional Info

From the Producer

Aged on the lees for up to 24 months, with no racking in 100% new oak. This is sourced from the Jupilles forest north of the Loire Valley, renowned for its slow growing, tight grained wood.

Wines are never pumped, moved by gravity and are unfined, unfiltered and no sulphur during ageing. A small amount is added at bottling.

A gentle decant is recommend before drinking to dissolve any slight residual carbon dioxide and to allow the wines to best show themselves.

Blend : Pinot Noir (100%)
ABV : 13.5%
Closure : Cork
Drink Until : 2035
Bottle Size : 750ml

"A moderately toasty nose reflects notes of cassis, wild red currant and soft floral wisps. ...sleek, muscular and broad-shouldered flavors..." - Allan Meadows (Burghound)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

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? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

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).
