What the Critics say
‘The 2016 Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes comes from purchased grapes sourced from two lieux-dits: Drazy and Grammaire. It is 100% destemmed with 20% new oak. It has a seductive nose of baked black cherries, vanilla pod and hints of blue fruit that blossom immediately in the glass. The palate is well balanced with succulent ripe red cherry and cranberry fruit, a pleasant chalky texture toward the latter half with a mineral-intense finish. Excellent. Drink 2020-2032.'
From two vineyards ‘Les Drazey’ beneath Sentiers 1er Cru and ‘Les Gamaires’ on the border with Morey St. Denis, both vineyards have silty clay soils. All of the vines are 50+ years old.
Father and son Hubert and Laurent Lignier manage this 9-hectare estate in Morey-Saint-Denis. They practice organic practices to create a perfect balance for the vine’s growth. Their wines are fresh, fine and elegant Burgundies thanks to the very little intervention in the cellar.
