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

91-94 Points Allen Meadows
Exuberantly pinot-like aromas include those of both red and blue fruit, earth and a whisper of the sauvage along with background floral and spice hints. Once again, there is a highly attractive texture to the solidly concentrated and intense flavors that are at once robust yet sleek, all wrapped in a powerful and very firm finish; indeed it is presently almost strict. This is definitely not fashioned for early consumption and while there is excellent potential, it is expressly built for extended keeping.
