HUBERT LIGNIER MOREY-ST-DENIS 1ER CRU VIEILLES VIGNES 2018

5 Current Inventory

The Ligniers’ iconic “Vieilles Vignes” encompasses tiny holdings in two different premier crus: 0.33 hectares in Les Faconnières planted between 1947 and 1960, and 0.2 hectares in Les Chenevery planted between 1936 and 1942. Both crus are situated just beneath Clos de la Roche on the slope, and the resultant wine always possesses an ineffable grand-cru “x-factor” and a striking sense of sappiness from the vines’ extreme age. Laurent employs 20% whole clusters and one-third new oak for this cuvée, which spends a lengthy 21 months in barrels.  Certified organic.
