2015 Domaine Hubert Lignier Morey Saint-Denis Vieilles Vignes 1er Cru
The 2015 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru has a wonderful, detailed, charming bouquet of red currant, cranberry and bergamot scents entwined with rose petals and minerals. The palate is well balanced, displaying fine definition, gentle grip and a hint of dried blood filtered through the slightly darker-than-expected fruit on the finish. I appreciate the structure here – très Morey-Saint-Denis. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.

2015 Domaine Hubert Lignier Morey Saint-Denis Les Chaffots 1er Cru
The 2015 Morey-Saint-Denis Les Chaffots 1er Cru has a slightly disjointed bouquet at first, a little leaner than I would expect given the precocity of the vintage, although this may be entering a dumb phase. The palate is well balanced, with lightly spiced, sappy red berry fruit and impressive detail and precision toward the finish. With aeration, the aromatics do improve, resulting in a potentially very fine Morey-Saint-Denis that just needs three or four years in bottle. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.

2015 Domaine Hubert Lignier Clos de la Roche Grand Cru
The 2015 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru has a compelling bouquet of intense red and black fruit infused with crushed stone, mint and a touch of sage. The aromatics convey a genuine sense of energy. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and a little more angular and edgy than its peers, and shows marked salinity toward the finish. Maybe this is beginning to close up. However, the quality is without doubt and this regal Grand Cru just needs time. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.
