Domaine Hubert Lignier Gevrey Chambertin 1erCru Aux Combottes 2011

Burgundy,Cote de Nuits
Pinot Noir

The 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Aux Combettes comes from a parcel bought by Hubert Lignier himself back in 1959 when the vines were just three years old. It sees 40% new oak. The nose is subtle at first, refined and bashful, but give it a few swirls and a very sophisticated bouquet of pure fresh strawberry and raspberry emerges that is beautifully defined and displays greater mineralite than the La Perriere. The palate is very well-balanced with a stony opening, good backbone and a tightly-wound tannic finish that is precise and maybe too abrupt at the moment. Still, this has great potential.

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
