2015 Domaine Hubert Lignier Morey St. Denis (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1326468 88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Morey-Saint-Denis Village, a blend of two parcels, was raised in around 20% new oak and was completely de-stemmed. It has a perfumed, quite floral bouquet with kirsch, wild raspberry and hints of orange blossom that gain vigor in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy red berry fruit, the tannins a little rigid at first. However, it seems to mellow in the glass and offers veins of spice towards the finish that needs to succor more body and density. Again, give this a couple of years in bottle.(NM)  (12/2016)

87-90 points Vinous

 two-thirds from purchased fruit, from vines on the north side of the village): Bright, dark red. Aromas of black cherry complicated by game and crushed rock reminded me more of Gevrey-Chambertin than of Morey. Less sweet and open than the Très Girard but still with a fairly supple texture to its flavors of cranberry, licorice and spices. Finishes classically dry, firmly tannic and a bit youthfully tight.(ST)  (1/2017)

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.
