What the Critics say
'From vines planted between 1950 and 2000, drawing from the climats ‘Reniard’ and ‘Epointures’.
‘of the the 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin- comes from an exchange of grapes with another grower and is sourced from two parcels. It offers plush red cherry, redcurrant and boysenberry jam scents on the nose that I feel could benefit from a little more complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, quite fine tannin and a brisk line of acidity. This feels linear in the mouth, quite strict for a 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin, although it will flesh out by the time this is in bottle.’
From vines planted between 1950 and 2002 in the “Reniard” and “Epointures” climats. The wines are vinified separately then blended for ageing and the result is a deliciously fruity wine. Generous when young, it also has good cellar-ageing potential.
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.
