"We came here because of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and stayed because of the Côte d'Or and its wines."

Munir studied and worked in a Trappist monastery, where he discovered the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Later he entered the Higher National Agronomic School in Montpellier, where he studied viticulture and winemaking. Then, six years gaining experience in various vineyards in Burgundy and other regions of France as well as in California, where he was bewitched "old school" cultivation, vinification and aging of wine.

Economy "Lucien Le Moine" produces only selected wines and class Grand Premiers Crus, to create which every year is only the best harvest. As merchants, the couple buys from local winemakers red wines often after the pressing process and white in the form of juice, and then completes the "maturation" of wines in barrels in a small cellar of the XVIII century in Bonn. That is why the wine is produced in small quantities: in 2002, the year it was made 67 barrels of wine, in 2003 - 47, and in 2004 - 72. And the very small winery in Beaune calculated only 100 barrels (30,000 bottles) . It allows Munir and Rotem personally engage each harvest, using the accumulated over the years of training and practice invaluable knowledge and experience.
