Domaine Hubert Lignier, Pinot Noir, Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru, Gevrey-Chambertin, Côte de Nuits, Burgundy, France 2018
Frequently there is a mere barrel of wine produced per year from the tiny parcel of Charmes-Chambertin owned by the Ligniers on the Mazoyères-Haut climat. The surface is less than a tenth of a hectare. The vines were planted in 1948. Soil deeper than in Clos de la Roche and composed of clay-limestone and sand. The vineyards are located next to Les Combottes, to the south of Charmes-Chambertin.
The Charmes-Chambertin from Lignier is the feminine companion to the magnificent Clos de la Roche. The wines are characterized by floral scents, they are often elegant and delicate yet also possess the power and length on the palate worthy of a rather charming Grand Cru.
