MOREY SAINT DENIS
2013 1er Cru Aux Chezeaux Domaine Lignier-Michelot
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
|Village||Morey Saint Denis|
Very harmonious nose with a touch of cherry-stone ('Burlat cherry stone', says Virgile, showing how the French just know more about varieties of fruit and veg than anyone), and very fine tannins which give a certain body and fleshiness, and still the insistent pointed fruit enlivens it all, purple and bright. Drinking range: 2020 - 2028 L&S (Nov 2014)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
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.
