In 2014, Hubert and Laurent sourced grapes from a 50-year-old plot in this hallowed grand cru—a total of only two barrels of wine. Of the three grand crus issuing forth from Lignier’s cellar, this is the most elegant, airy, and feminine, emphasizing higher-toned spices and floral elements in its aromatics, and with a mineral-drenched, vibrant palate full of lift and energy. Nonetheless, its tightly coiled structure and slightly inward-facing demeanor signal the need for some cellar time in order for the wine to fully blossom. For many years, we offered wines from this same parcel when representing the Domaine des Chezeaux!
This is restrained to the point of being all but mute and it requires aggressive swirling to reveal the reluctant aromas of spice, red and dark currant and subtle floral nuances to reveal themselves. The refined, pure and elegant flavors exude a discreet minerality that adds a bit of lift to the firm, long and mildly warm finish that displays a touch of bright acidity.
