Peter Maude Fine Wines

2021, Domaine Lignier-Michelot, MOREY-SAINT-DENIS, 'Vielles Vignes'

From a blend of Très Girard, Les Cognées and Chenevery

80% whole bunch vinification. A full mid purple. The nose of fully ripe fruit, black and brambly, full and fleshy before the whole bunches provide a little more rigidity at the back. Halfway between En La Rue de Vergy and Chambolle in style. Drink from 2026-2030. **** 90-92 Jasper Morris MW.

A ripe, fresh and equally floral-suffused nose offers up a mix of red and dark currant tinged with crushed fennel. The very rich, caressing and seductively textured mid-palate contrasts somewhat with the punchy, powerful, dusty and robust finale. At least some patience will be required for his very good Morey villages. Outstanding. 89-91 Burghound.
