Lucien Le Moine Chambolle Musigny Les Hauts Doix 2014
|Region||France, Burgundy, Chambolle-Musigny|
|Brand||Lucien Le Moine|
Les Haut Doix is a small vineyard between Les Charmes and Les Amoureuses. It sits within Les Amoureuses before the road to Les Charmes, but the wines show more acidity and fresh fruit than Les Amoureuses. It is crisper, less spicy, with fruit that is less ripe in character than Les Amoureuses. There is less drainage in this vineyard, and the soil is more viscous.
This red offers a dark expression of black cherry and black currant, spiced with sandalwood and a hint of licorice, all backed by a dense matrix of ripe tannins. Finds equilibrium on the long finish. Best from 2022 through 2045.
