This cuvée comes from a small parcel of well-drained soil. More info

This Gevrey-Chambertin comes from vines planted in 1987 that span an area of just 2,500 square metres. The terroir is rich in gravel with a well-draining soil. The vines are grown organically and the harvests are undertaken by hand. The yields are limited with rigorous sorting.
There is little intervention when the grapes are vinified. Wild yeasts instigate fermentation. A third of the grapes go into the winery in full bunches. The wine matures for a long time in oak casks (20-30% new wood). The resulting wine is distinguished for its elegant, delicate character and the softness of its tannins.

About the Producer Hubert Lignier

The excellent reputation of Domaine Hubert Lignier goes back a long way, due to the finesse and concentration of their wines. In 1991 Hubert's son Romain joined the domain. He sadly died in 2004, and two years later Romain's brother, Laurent, joined his father. The domain, practicing sustainable agriculture, counts eight hectares of vineyard close to Morey, Gevrey and Chambolle.
All the work is carried out with quality in mind (manual harvests, low yields, strict sorting); according to Laurent, “75% of a wine's quality comes from the quality of the vineyard”. Most of the grapes grown are Pinot noir, with a small amount of Gamay and Aligoté.
The juice is vinified with little intervention, with wild-yeast fermentation and long maturations of 21-22 months on lees. The wines are not fined or filtered. What we find in the glass is a suppleness with tannins of a velvety character.
