Melt-in-the-Mouth Morey
16 July 2019

We are huge fans of the Lignier wines. Rather like Laurent Lignier himself, the wines are calm, unfussy but honest and very likeable. The style here is classic, unadulterated traditional Burgundy of great purity. There is no greater tribute to this style than 2016, a highly successful Morey vintage. Offering us his reflections on 2016, Laurent told us “ it was a vintage like 2010. There was good maturity of the tannins at harvest time and, although ripe, the wines stayed very fresh. They have good substance yet you can also see each terroir very clearly. They also remind me a little of 2002.” Harvested at 13 to 13.5 % potential alcohol and with good acidity levels, the 2016s here are supple, juicy and very fresh. They are even-keeled and offer tremendous poise and clarity, bound together by fine melt-in the mouth textures.
