Domaine Lucie et Auguste Lignier Gevrey Chambertin Aux Combottes 2005

Burgundy,Cote de Nuits
Pinot Noir

Easily the most elegant effort to this point with brilliantly attractive red pinot fruit that is both spicy and dense followed by ripe, detailed, classy and pure flavors that evince obvious mineral notes and plenty of vibrancy on the long and perfectly balanced finish. Really lovely. - BH91-93

The Winery

Lucie and Auguste are the children of the late Romain Lignier and Romain’s widow Kellen who has been running the domaine for her children despite the opposition of her in-laws. The situation has not been definitively resolved at the time of writing, though there appears to be at least a truce if not a final understanding. Almost all the domaine (apart from 1.1 hectares of Morey-St-Denis Les Sionnières and a couple of other very small plots) relies on sharecropping agreements, mostly with Hubert Lignier, so these may could still come to an end.
