From a domaine whose wines are "getting better and better" (Jancis Robinson MW), this is a beautifully balanced, spiced fruit Morey. Julia Harding MW calls it "deft and satisfying." A great vintage and top wine from the highly praised Benoit Stehly.

Georges Lignier is a third generation family domaine with enviable vineyards holdings, including the largest share of Grand Cru Clos Saint Denis. The family has a total of 16 hectares of vines, dotted over 50 premium parcels throughout Burgundy. In 2008, Georges's nephew Benoît Stehly took charge, "since which time the wines have become finer and finer" (Jancis Robinson MW). Burgundy expert Serena Sutcliffe MW concurs, “this domaine very often produces the essence of the (Pinot Noir) grape". The grapes are handpicked from two sites, Les Crais and Clos Solon, both on the lower part of the hillside. 18 months in seasoned oak barrels produces a complex wine. Let it breathe before serving with chicken with morel mushrooms. Alternatively cellar.
"More savoury and spiced on the palate, firm but rounded. Deft and satisfying, a complete wine"
