2013 Pinot Noir 'Cuvee Bertin' (Gevrey Chambertin)Lignier-Michelot
The Lignier family have deep roots in the village of Morey Saint Denis and own 10.5 hectares of some of the very best vineyard sites in this village, and also in the 2 neighbouring villages Chambolle Musigny and Gevrey Chambertin. Virgile’s father and grand-father had always produced wine and sold it to negotiants until Virgile started working with his father in the early 1990’s and he decided to sell the wines himself. Now with almost 20 vintages of experience Virgile has moved the domaine to fully organic viticulture and is producing what many believe to be the best wines of this prestigious village.
2013 Gevrey Chambertin “Cuvee Bertin“
Comes mostly from a parcel of old vines in Les Seuvrees which borders on to Grand cru Charmes Chambertin close to the Morey St Denis border. “(from Les Seuvrées and Les Murots; 40% whole cluster). There is plenty of Gevrey character to the distinctly earthy and notably animale dark currant, floral and underbrush suffused nose. There is excellent intensity to the dense, serious and vibrant medium weight flavors that possess fine delineation on the powerful yet seductively textured finish that displays just a hint of rusticity. This too delivers fine quality for its level. (89-91)/2019+” Burghound.com January 2015
