Scintillating Burgundy

Scintillating Burgundy
Property of the Lignier family since 1880, the Domaine Hubert Lignier in Morey-St-Denis is a small Burgundian estate held in high esteem by Pinot lovers and fellow vignerons alike. The estate, since 2006 directed by Laurent Lignier and helped by his father Hubert, spans across nine hectares of vineyards, principally in Morey-St-Denis, Gevrey-Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny, but also in Nuits-St-Georges and Pommard. The vineyards are treated with respect, tended without the use of herbicides or insecticides. Laurent summarises the domaine’s aim to be “aspiring to make authentic and sensual wines that express their own terroir.” Understated and gentle the wines reflect the character of their maker. The grapes are all destalked, apart from 10% for the Grands Crus in certain vintages, and the wines are aged in oak barrels for 20 months sur lie with no racking , the barrels are always light in toast, fine-grained and never more than 20% new. Vinifications and ageing are gentle, slow and non-interventionist, as Laurent says “watching and patience are key in the cellar.”

These are scintillating Burgundies of verve and purity.

We are delighted to offer this spread of vintages, including the current release 2015, all bought direct from the Domaine. The wines are in stock and available for immediate delivery.
