Côte-de-Nuits

Morey-Saint-Denis

Located at the heart of Côte de Nuits, Morey-Saint-Denis forms a bridge, between the wines of Gevrey-Chambertin to the north and those of Chambolle-Musigny to the south. Most of the appellation’s vineyards are planted with Pinot Noir grapes, producing wines that are typically full-bodied, structured and complex. However, a few parcels are planted with Chardonnay or Pinot Blanc varieties, yielding a rare and interesting white wine, generally quite firm and opulent.

The vineyards of Morey-Saint-Denis transition from the valley flats to 270m in altitude on the slopes. The region also has a diversity of terroirs – from pebbly, limestone rich soils in the north and south to more alluvial, clay soils in the mid-region.

David Duband Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru ‘Clos Sorbé’ 2018

‘A fresh, cool and more elegant array is comprised by notes of both red and dark pinot fruit along with background floral and earth suggestions. The succulent, round and delicious middle weight flavors are finer if less powerful, all wrapped in a lingering finish that progressively tightens up as it sits on the palate to the point that it becomes quite compact. This will definitely need a few years to unwind. Drink 2028+.’ Burghound.com January 2020.

David Duband Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru ‘Clos Sorbé’ 2019

"A more floral suffused nose speaks of spiced aromas of red currant, cherry, violet and lavender. The fleshy, round and nicely refined flavors possess good delineation on the bitter cherry pit-inflected finish that offers just a bit more overall depth and persistence. Note that this will need at least a few years of cellaring first." Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Hubert Lignier Morey-Saint-Denis 1er ‘Chaffots’ 2016

A discreet but not invisible hint of volatile acidity adds lift to the well-layered nose of black cherry, violet, lavender and subtle earth and spice hints. The muscular and energetic broad-shouldered flavors offer excellent punch and depth on the driving and firmly structured finish. Assuming that the VA remains at its current level, it shouldn't be more than a background element. Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Hubert Lignier Morey-Saint-Denis 1er ‘Chaffots’ 2017

A cool, pure and relatively high-toned nose combines aromas of essence of red cherry, lilac, violet, lavender and plenty of earth character. There is better concentration to the nicely powerful and muscular flavors that culminate in a robust finale and while the finish still comes across as grippy, the tannins seem riper. Burghound

Domaine Hubert Lignier Morey-Saint-Denis 1er ‘Chaffots’ 2018

The 2018 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Les Chaffots wafts from the glass with aromas of plums, cinnamon, peonies, orange rind and raw cocoa. Medium-bodied, fine-boned and lively, it's bright and nicely concentrated, with youthfully chalky tannins and a saline finish. As usual, this is one of the more tightly wound premiers crus in the range, with an elegant, rather ethereal profile, and it will reward bottle age. William Kelley, Parker's Wine Advocate

Domaine Hubert Lignier Gevrey-Chambertin ‘Les Seuvrées’ MAGNUM 2018

"An attractively fresh and surprisingly elegant array offers up notes of earthy dark currant, plum and a whisper of spice. There is good energy and delineation to the lighter weight flavors that exude a refreshing salinity on the delicious, moderately firm and more complex finale." Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Hubert Lignier Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Vielles Vignes 2016

The 2016 Morey St Denis 1er Cru Vieilles Vignes, which comes from vines planted as far back as the 1930s, suffered a lot of millerandage so that the yields was 25 hectoliters per hectare. It is matured one-third new oak and one-third whole bunch fruit. It has an introspective bouquet at first and then gradually unfolds to reveal enticing blackberry, briary and cold stone scents—all very sophisticated and poised. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannin, a disarming sense of symmetry an

Domaine Hubert Lignier Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Vielles Vignes 2017

Moderately generous wood frames the intensely floral and fresh aromas of dark berries, violet, plum and earth. The rich and strikingly vibrant middle weight flavors exhibit evident muscle and minerality along with very good power on the lingering and very firm finish that is shaped by grippy and somewhat coarse tannins. My sense is that this may become less overtly rustic as the tannins resolve though with that said this is unlikely to ever be particularly refined. Burghound

Domaine Hubert Lignier Gevrey-Chambertin ‘Les Seuvrées’ MAGNUM 2019

"Aromas of ripe plum, spice, damp earth and the sauvage are trimmed in admirably discreet wood. There is fine richness and volume to the sleek, intense and well-detailed middle weight flavors that are quite saline in character, all wrapped in a relatively powerful, palate coating and long if mildly rustic finish. This too is an impressive villages and recommended. ♥ Outstanding Top value" Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Hubert Lignier Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Vielles Vignes 2018

Unwinding in the glass with a deep, youthfully reserved bouquet of cassis, plums, rich soil tones, dark chocolate and warm spices, Lignier's 2018 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Vieilles Vignes is medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with a deep and textural core, lively acids and a long, mineral finish. Serious and elegantly muscular, this is a long-haul proposition, and I will be adding some to my own cellar. William Kelley, Parker's Wine Advocate

Joseph Faiveley Clos-de-la-Roche Grand Cru 2019

I had Faiveley's 2015 Latricières Chambertin recently, delicious, perfumed elegant and refined. Along with the 2015, I devoured a brace of 2016's from across the appellations. They are really stepping up their game, the investments in the vineyard and winery are a testament to this. Clos de la Roche is the source of some of Burgundy's very best wines. Having access to fruit from this site is the stuff of dreams for winemakers in Burgundy and around the world. The list of top wines from this vi
