2012 Rue de Vergy Domaine Lignier-Michelot
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
|Village||Morey Saint Denis|
|Vineyard||Rue de Vergy|
30% whole bunch. Very focused. Ripe and round but chiselled, delicate, appetisingly precise. Difficult not to swallow. A high vineyard running along the top of the Grands Crus, very much on the rock. L&S (Dec 2013)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Good bright red. Very pure, perfumed aromas of cherry, raspberry, brown spices and flowers. Sweet, lush and lightly saline; a fruit bomb for Morey, with hints of menthol and minerals adding complexity. Finishes with suave, fine-grained tannins and very good spicy persistence Rating: 89-92 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Jan 2014)
This is also marked by floral nuances but in this case they are less prominent on the cool, pure and elegant aromas of violet, black berry and wet stone. There is a relatively refined mouth feel to the mineral-driven, intense and saline-infused finish that is notably saline in character. 2018+ Rating: 88-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2014)
A domaine of 11 hectares, 25% regionals, 50% Villages, 20% Premiers crus and 5% Grands Crus. Virgile Lignier's wines have a lovely combination of enough body and richness, combined with a lively clarity of expression. The old vines village cuvées are seriously good, and great value too. Going up the scale each site seems to speak very clearly of its source and there is a brightness and energy along with full, seamless fruit.
