80% Whole bunch. This has real intense power at its core. Broad fruit, deep red and some black notes - but all well ripened and full on. Pure and yet quite charmingly crowd-pleasing matter lies at the core of this - and it is delivered in a very polished way. Drinking range: 2019 - 2025 L&S (Nov 2018)

(from 50+ year old vines; 60% whole cluster). There is just enough reduction to blur the nuances of the mostly red berry fruit and lavender-scented nose. The fleshy, forward and round medium-bodied flavors possess a caressing, even seductive, mouthfeel while delivering reasonably good length despite a hint of dryness that is probably related to the abundant gas. Note that my projected range offers the benefit of the doubt. Drinking range: 2025 - Rating: 88-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jan 2019)
The 2017 Morey-Saint-Denis Aux Charmes 1er Cru has a brooding intensity on the well-defined, focused nose of blackberry, woodland and pine aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, the 80% whole bunches discreet and only noticeable toward the harmonious, white pepper and crushed stone finish. Excellent. Drinking range: 2022 - 2036 Rating: 91-93 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com(Jan 2019)
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.
