    Cuvée presentation

    Since 2005, Domaine Hubert Lignier has been buying grande cuvée parcels in the lieu-dit of Les Didiers, a monopole of the Hospices de Nuits domain. The parcel in question here covers 2.5 hectares, bordering on the Saint-Georges terroir of the Côte de Nuits. This concentrated cuvée has a rare finesse. Its mellow tannins, black berry aromas and smoky notes offer great length in the mouth.

    Information about domain 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.
