Stephen Tanzer, Jan 2018,
Good dark red. Lovely aromatic nose combines purple and red fruits, licorice, violet and spices. Wonderfully silky on entry, then broad and intense in the middle palate, offering superb depth and juicy minerality to its purple fruit and spice flavors. The Ligniers had a good yield here and this wine shows no sense of stress (by comparison, the 2015 bottling is more reserved). Finishes very long, spicy and light on its feet, with terrific palate-saturating breadth and very refined tannins.
Domaine Hubert et Laurent Lignier
Clos de la Roche
The finest and biggest Grand Cru red wine appellation in Burgundy's Morey-St-Denis, on the Côte deNuits, covering 16.9ha. Clos de la Roche's soils are rich in marl which gives more body, depth and ageing potential to its wines than most other vineyards. Wines from Clos de la Roche tend to be powerful and full bodied with black fruit aromas and flavours, developing rich, gamey characters with age.
