Description

Since 2009, the Lignier family has purchased grapes from a half-hectare parcel in this well-positioned vineyard just below premier cru Clos Sorbé on the slope in southern Morey-Saint-Denis. Its 40-year-old vines, which the Ligniers manage during the growing season and at harvest, produce a lithe, energetic wine that leans toward Chambolle-Musigny in its overall graceful character, but with a textbook Morey-Saint-Denis savory underpinning. The 2017 was entirely de-stemmed and raised in 25% new oak, and it should provide for excellent early drinking.
