Old family vines here in a 1ha plot. Vines planted between 1938 and 1966 on this site which lies over the D974 below Mazoyères Grand Cru. Les Seuvrées gives a more masculine, meaty style of Gevrey, with great ageing potential. Super core of dark fruit, with wood smoke and a little iron on the finish. Good length.
The 2015 Morey-Saint-Denis Très Girard comes from purchased fruit vinified by Laurent Lignier. There is a candied, almost confectionery shop aroma to this Morey with effervescent red cherry and kirsch aromas. The palate is nicely structured with supple tannin and well-judged acidity. It exerts a gentle grip in the mouth with darker berry fruit occupying the slightly grainy finish. Give this a year or two in bottle.

About the Domaine
“The soil is the key to succeed in making a great wine: respecting and looking after it is essential to reveal a great terroir.”
Domaine Hubert Lignier has grown to 9 hectares and has extensive holdings not just in Morey but also Gevrey, Chambolle and Nuits St Georges. Hubert’s son, Laurent, now runs the Domaine and is gaining a reputation for making pure ‘terroir’ driven wines of profound fruit quality. Excellent recent reviews from ‘Bourgogne Aujourdhui’ This feels like a terrific time for Laurent and his Domaine. Having put their troubles behind them he has made a run of exceptional if differing vintages with skilful wine making and sensitivity towards terroir as their hallmark. We recently welcomed Laurent to London for two days of tasting and I was genuinely wowed by many of the wines we drank. The future looks bright as this domaine reclaims its rightful place in the top level of Morey-St-Denis. Watch out for the 2017s, they are terrific.
