2015 Domaine Hubert Lignier Gevrey Chambertin "Les Seuvrees"(1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1326462 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin les Seuvrées comes from vines that tend to produce small berries and includes 20-25% whole bunch fruit this year. It has a very seductive redcurrant and pomegranate-scented bouquet with a tangible underlying mineralité. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well-integrated new oak (20%) with a harmonious, slightly chalky finish that lingers in the mouth. This is very fine.(NM)  (12/2016)

90-92 points Vinous

 (these vines range in age from 50 to 60 years old; 20% vendange entier): Bright dark red. Pure but subdued scents of cranberry and stony minerality; shows the lift provided by active calcaire. Dense and sappy on the palate, with a spicy accent to the red and darker berry flavors. A note of medicinal cherry emerged with aeration. This youthful wine finishes with suave tannins. Should make a terrific village wine.(ST)  (1/2017)

88-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 Like the straight Gevrey villages the nose lacks a bit of freshness but there is good complexity to the dark pinot fruit, earth, game and underbrush-inflected aromas. There is fine volume, richness and density to the relatively powerful, dusty, serious and well-balanced finish where the supporting tannins are clearly riper. Once again my range offers the benefit of the doubt that this will recover its freshness and verve as the underlying material appears to be excellent.  (1/2017)

91 points John Gilman

 The Gevrey-Chambertin “les Seuvrées” bottling is another new cuvée in the lineup, which hails from a very well-situated lieu à dit just below Mazoyrès-Chambertin. These vines were planted in the 1950s and 1960s and are now in a very good place. The 2015 included twenty-five percent whole clusters this year and offers up a deep and sappy nose of red and black cherries, dark soil tones, mustard seed, hints of the grilled meat to come, woodsmoke and cedar. On the palate the wine is full-bodied and very pure on the attack, with lovely sappiness at the core, fine focus and soil signature and a nice sense of reserve on the very long and ripely tannic finish. A fine new addition! 2023-2065.  (1/2017)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Burgundy

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north. View our bestselling Burgundy.
Specific Appellation:

Gevrey Chambertin

- For many wine aficionados, Gevrey Chambertin is the northernmost end of the true Côte d'Or. The largest of all of the communes, it has 9 Grands Crus (Chambertin, Chambertin Clos de Bèze, Chapelle Chambertin, Charmes Chambertin, Griotte Chambertin, Latricieres Chambertin, Mazy Chambertin, Mazoyeres Chambertin and Ruchottes Chambertin). The best Premier Cru wines come form the vineyards nestled along a hill to the west of the village. The Grands Crus are planted in compacted limestone, while the soils in the rest of the village vary as to their clay content. If we are to characterize broadly, the wines are powerful, muscular and need time in the bottle to develop.
