The Lignier family have deep roots in the village of Morey Saint Denis and own 10.5 hectares of some of the very best vineyard sites in this village,along with plots in the two neighbouring villages of Chambolle Musigny and Gevrey Chambertin.

In the last 10 years Virgile Lignier has modified his wine-making using whole-bunch vinification ranging from 30-100% depending on the vintage and the vineyard, and he has also reduced the percentage of new oak for maturation with most wines seeing around 30% making its effect seamless in the final wines.

They are wines which are often very seductive at a young age which also clearly have the potential for ageing superbly. This very young domaine is now regarded among the very best in the Cotes de Nuits.

Tasting Notes

88-90 Points Allen Meadows
A ripe yet decidedly cool and airy nose conveys the pure essence of dark currant with kirsch and rose petal top notes. The refined, intense and equally well-detailed flavors possess a lovely texture along with even more apparent minerality on the youthfully austere, focused and sneaky long finale.
