    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.
