Description

The Lignier family has deep roots in the village of Morey Saint Denis and owns 10.5 hectares of some of the very best vineyard sites in this village, and also in the 2 neighbouring villages Chambolle Musigny and Gevrey Chambertin. Virgile’s father and grandfather had always produced wine and sold it to negotiants until Virgile started working with his father in the early 1990s and he decided to sell the wines himself. Now with almost 20 vintages of experience, Virgile has moved the Domaine to fully organic viticulture and is producing what many believe to be the best wines of this prestigious village.

In the last 10 years, Virgile has modified his wine-making using whole-bunch vinification ranging from 30-100% depending on the vintage and the vineyard and he has also reduced the percentage of new oak (mostly Seguin-Moreau and Francois Freres) for maturation with most wines seeing around 30% making its effect seamless in the final wines. He also completed a new winery in time for the 2013 vintage that now enables him to work with temperature control and to gain a very gentle extraction of tannins for all his wines. This results in wines showing great precision and energy with remarkable perfume and also beautiful fine tannins and a very silky structure. They are wines that are often very seductive at a young age and also clearly have the potential for aging superbly. This very young Domaine is now regarded among the very best in the Cotes de Nuits.

Review

A slightly cooler liqueur-like nose features notes of red and black raspberry, violet, and subtle spice influences. The sleek, delicious and very well-detailed flavours exude a subtle minerality that adds a sense of lift to the youthfully austere and equally refreshing finale. This too is really quite good and worth a look.

Tasting Profile

Palate
The 2019 Morey-Saint-Denis En La Rue de Vergy, comes from 50-year-old vines and is blended with 70% whole bunches. It has an intense nose, a mélange of red/black fruit, hints of kirsch, and rose petals. The palate is medium-bodied with shimmering red berry fruit, a fine bead of acidity, and silky smooth with a surfeit of tension on the finish. What is not to like about this Morey-Saint-Denis? Very little. Neal Martin- Vinous
