Village Gevrey Chambertin

A blunter, broader Gevrey nose to finish the run of Virgile's village wines. Cassis on the entry and then it picks up a bit of zip too - surprisingly bright with expression. Definitely delivers 'Gevrey'. Drinking range: 2018 - L&S (Nov 2015)

The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin Cuvée Bertin includes 40% whole cluster fruit this year. Lovely transparency on the nose here, whereby cold stone/granite scents suffuse that black pastille-like fruit. The palate is supple on the entry, rounded in the mouth with fleshy red cherries and strawberry, although it is missing just a little backbone on the finish. Let's see in bottle. Drinking range: 2016 - 2022 Rating: 88-90 Neal Martin, (Dec 2015)

Les Seuvrees and Murots it’s a blend of two parcels. This is light and has nice energy. Fine tannins. An elegant style. Well knit and pure. Skates across the palate. Rating: 16.5 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing (Nov 2015)

Domaine Lignier-Michelot

A domaine of 11 hectares, 25% regionals, 50% Villages, 20% Premiers crus and 5% Grands Crus. Virgile Lignier worked at the domaine with his father Maurice from 1988, beginning to bottle some of the wine from 1992 (it had previously been sold to the négoce), taking over in 2000, which was the vintage when he first bottled all the domaine's production.

In the vineyard Virgile made significant changes, stopping the use of herbicides, and beginning to plough instead. Green harvesting to limits yields followed, along with greater attention to grape selection. The domaine works organically except in extremis.

The 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.
