- Burgundy,Cote de Nuits

- Pinot Noir
This is also quite firmly reduced and impossible to assess. Once again there is a lovely sense of verve to the more muscular and solidly concentrated flavors that are powerful, focused and unapologetically rustic on the serious finish. This excellent effort is almost old school in style and will definitely require patience. - BH89~91
The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin les Seuvrées, which comes from two parcels planted in 1956 and 1966, had a touch of reduction on the nose (it was actually the last to go through malolactic). The palate is nicely balanced with a bit of sinew on the entry. Firm structured here, a little static at the moment, but the finish demonstrates sufficient detail and freshness to suggest that it's just a question of time. - WA88~90
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
