The producer

Unusually for Burgundy, this domaine – named “Lucien the Monk” – has no connection to any of the monasteries that dominated the viticulture for centuries. Founded in 1999, it is rather a unique “non-estate” as the wines are sourced throughout Burgundy, especially in Chambolle, Gevrey, Morey, Vosne and Vougeot (red) as well as in Corton Charlemagne (white) primarily from Grand and Premier Cru usually in small parcels. 

The wines are then treated to elevage as deemed fit by winemaker Rotem Saouma who describes his wines as a “library of the greatest Premier and Grand Cru vineyards in the Cote d’Or”. The wines invariably show lovely sweetness of fruit and perfect spicing of oak. Unusual possibly, exceptional definitely!

The wine

Mazis-Chambertin grand cru is lying on gently sloping land in north of Gevrey’s grand cru area. The soil is rich in limestone, and the micro-climate is protected by forests in the northwest. Mazis is a grand cru known for powerful expressions of Pinot Noir, and Le Moine’s interpretation is true to the style with deep red currant fruit concentration, earthy minerality, and smoky depth and length.

We choose our wines based on a range of criteria (see how we choose our wines) of which critic scores is just one. Rather than simply highlight the best score to promote a wine, our average critic score is calculated from the scores provided by several respected wine critics, who we follow for specific regions. They do not represent all critic scores and, wherever possible, we try and give more weight to more recent reviews. Where appropriate we consider market-based scores like Global Wine Score or Wine Searcher Average scores.

As a rule, we look to offer wines that achieve a 92/100 average critic score or better and frankly a lot of very good wines simply don’t make the cut. As a high-end provider we want to reflect that positioning in the quality of wines we offer. Such wines are only a tiny fraction of those generally on offer in the market. We believe that an average score is a more conservative and representative approach, but it is still subjective and only offered as a guide to our customers, who will (and should) do their own research. We will add individual critic scores to our website in the future.
