Why is this Wine so Yummy?

Hubert Lignier has been a favourite of mine since I first tasted the Domain’s wines 20 years ago.

Winemaking

Father and son Hubert and Laurent Lignier manage this 9 hectares estate in Morey-Saint-Denis. They practice organic viticulture in order to create a perfect balance for the vine’s growth but have no intention of seeking certification.
