Domaine Hubert Lignier Morey-Saint-Denis Tres Girard 2017

Burgundy,Cote de Nuits
Pinot Noir

The wood treatment is better integrated even if it's not invisible on the pretty blend of dark cherry, raspberry and equally discreet floral and spice whiffs. The mouthfeel of the middle weight flavors is just as fine if not as dense, all wrapped in sneaky long and mildly rustic finale. Drink 2023+ - BH87~89

Produced from purchased grapes, the 2017 Morey-Saint-Denis Très Girard reveals textbook notes of raspberries, raw cocoa, warm spices and sweet soil tones, followed by a medium-bodied, open-knit palate with a fleshy core of fruit and fine but chalky structuring tannins.- WA87~89

The Winery

Hubert Lignier is a family-owned domaine in Burgundy, producing both red and wines. The estate is located in Morey-Saint-Denis in the Côte de Nuits and is best known for its Pinot Noir wines from the grand cru vineyard Clos de la Roche. It is owned and run by the father-son duo Hubert and Laurent Lignier.

The estate is made up of around 9 hectares (22 acres) of vineyard land that ranges from the basic Bourgogne appellation to grand cru. Vineyard holdings are primarily located in the villages of Morey-Saint-Denis, Gevrey-Chambertin, and Chambolle-Musigny, with newer vineyards acquired in Nuits-Saint-Georges and Pommard.

Pinot Noir is the primary grape variety produced by the domaine, but Chardonnay, Gamay, and Aligoté are also included in the portfolio. Hubert Lignier practices traditional methods in the vineyard to showcase the terroir of each appellation, but practices interventionalist methods for vinification. Wines are left to age for 20-22 months in barrel, and are left unracked and on the lees after malolactic fermentation. Hubert Lignier wines are bottled without fining. - Information from Wine Searcher
