HUBERT LIGNIER MOREY-ST-DENIS 1ER CRU LES CHAFFOTS 2014

10 Current Inventory

The Ligniers own just under half a hectare of 50-year-old vines in this great premier cru, which sits just above Clos-Saint-Denis on the slope. Les Chaffots is the muscular, brooding counterpart to the more elegant La Riotte, offering an immensity of structure and ruggedness of fruit that allows the wine to age effortlessly for decades. It is even profoundly mineral-driven with a deeper register to its spicy, meaty aromas, and an almost shocking intensity and concentration on the palate. This is rich and broad, but still amazingly graceful, beautifully old-school in its demeanor.
