This vineyard holding sits directly above Grand cru Clos de Tart quite high on the slope and the resulting wine shows remarkable energy and dimension. A stunning village wine. “(30% whole cluster). A notably ripe yet cool nose displays notes of dark currant, humus and earth along with a subtle hint of the sauvage. The is excellent richness to the unusually full-bodied flavors that possess a velvety, even suave palate impression before terminating in a mineral-inflected, focused and dusty finish. This is a big (but balanced) wine in the context of the appellation. (88-91)/2020+” January 2015

Importer Note:

The Lignier family have deep roots in the village of Morey Saint Denis and own some of the very best vineyard sites in this village, and also in the 2 neighbouring villages Chambolle Musigny and Gevrey Chambertin. Virgile’s father and grand-father had always produced wine and sold it to negotiants until Virgile started working with his father in the early 1990’s and he decided to sell the wines himself. Now with almost 20 vintages of experience Virgile has moved the domaine to fully organic viticulture and is producing what many believe to be the best wines of this prestigious village.
In the last few vintages Virgile has modified his winemaking 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. He has also just completed a new winery that now enables him to work with temperature control and to gain a very gentle extraction of tannins for all his
wines. This results in wines showing great energy with remarkable perfume and also beautiful fine tannins and very silky structure. 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 a mong the very best in the Cotes de Nuits.
