"While the nose is firmly reduced there is an excellent sense of underlying tension to the middle weight flavors that are also relatively refined and definitely more mineral-inflected, all wrapped in a lingering finish that is shaped by slightly ripe tannins. Recommended." (BH)

Winery Notes:
Gevrey-Chambertin: The Ligniers purchased the fruit for this wine, but they oversee the vineyard work from July onward, as well as the harvest itself. Produced from parcels in two lieu-dits-15-year-old vines in “Epointures” and 60-year-old vines in “Reniard”-this is pitch-perfect Gevrey-Chambertin: meaty and succulent, with classic Lignier poise and a long, mineral-drenched, driving finish.
