2014 has been an excellent year all round. With 2015 following it, we’ve seen a pair of strong vintages. Time will tell which ends up taking the top spot. When you’re looking at wines from the great producers, like Hubert Lignier, either year, will undoubtedly make you happy when the cork gets popped!
About Hubert Lignier
In recent vintages the ever-congenial Hubert and his son Laurent have furnished each vintage with exemplary, occasionally heavenly wines that rank amongst the finest in Burgundy. If God made wine for a reason, then it was for wines like these. These are very special wines, some of the best you will find in Burgundy.
Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
Two of the aspects that I like best about the 2014s is their transparency to the underlying terroir coupled with their sheer drinkability. This transparency is enhanced by terrific vibrancy because the wines really do taste alive in the mouth as they’ve got energy, or what I like to call underlying tension. They’re ripe yet they are what the French call digest, or refreshing, where the first sip invites the next which is in fact what makes them so drinkable. Wine quality is not only generally consistent in 2014 but it’s good everywhere in the Côte de Nuits as well as up and down the appellation hierarchy.
