Producer Information: Georges Lignier

I MET GEORGES AT A VILLAGE TASTING IN 1994. HIS 1993 BONNES MARES WAS THE BEST OF HIS EXTENSIVE RANGE AND THE STAR OF THE DAY. IN GOOD VINTAGES, THE GRAND CRUS ARE AMONG THE BEST IN THE REGION. FERMENTATION IS ALLOWED TO RUN AT NATURALLY HIGH TEMPERATURES RESULTING IN HIGH EXTRACT OF BOTH COLOUR AND FLAVOUR. GEORGES MATURES HIS BEST REDS IN 100% NEW OAK. SITUATED IN THE HEART OF THE CôTE DE NUITS, IN MOREY-SAINT-DENIS, THE HOUSE OF THE DOMAINE GEORGES LIGNIER REMAINS TRADITIONAL IN ITS CONCEPTION. GEORGES WORKS THERE WITH HIS WIFE, ELIZABETH AND NEPHEW, BENOIT, WHEN THEY’RE NOT OUT IN ONE OF THE 100 PARCELS MAKING UP 15 HECTARES OF VINES. GEORGES IS DELIGHTFUL AND LIKE HIS WINES, SOMEWHAT AUSTERE; THEY TAKE SOME GETTING TO KNOW, BUT YOU WILL LOVE THEM.
