The 2015 Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru Vieilles Vignes comes from the oldest vines from Lignier's premier crus, and comes from a single block that straddles two lieux-dits. It has a very harmonious bouquet with blackberry, raspberry coulis, wet limestone and a touch of woodland. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. This feels so supple and focused, the acidity very well judged with great precision and energy shimmering on the finish. It might lack the kudos of a single vineyard name, but it represents one of Laurent Lignier's best 2015s.(NM)
I often think of the Morey “Vieilles Vignes” Premier Cru bottling chez Lignier as a baby Clos de la Roche, and this sensation is very much evident in this superb 2015 version. The bouquet is deep, stunning and quite youthful in its mélange of plums, red and black cherries, pigeon, raw cocoa, a great base of soil, nutty new wood and an exotic topnote of lavender. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and still quite primary in personality, with lovely sappiness in the mid-palate, fine-grained tannins, impeccable balance and a very, very long and very promising finish. Great juice. 2025-2075.
(25% vendange entier; a blend of Les Faconnières and Les Chenevery, from vines planted between 1936 and 1952): Good medium red. Subdued on the nose compared to the Chaffots, with an aroma of cherrry liqueur complemented by a toasty, grilled note. Concentrated, tactile and sweet in the mouth, displaying terrific silkiness and lovely aromatic complexity to the red fruit, spice and smoky mineral flavors. Offers a captivating balance of ripeness and vinosity and finishes with high-class tannins.(ST)
A reticent and distinctly somber nose combines hints of leather, smoke, earth, red currant and a hint of wood. There is excellent richness and intensity to the overtly powerful medium weight flavors that possess better mid-palate concentration along with better finishing balance on the distinctly firm finish.
An opulent, oaky raspberry nose leads into a sumptuous and full-bodied palate with lovely texture and fruit. It isn't too complex, but it is bright and balanced with a discreet structure that will alllow it to age. Drinking Window 2018 - 2026
