Domaine Hubert Lignier Morey St Denis 1er Cru La Riotte 2021


We have 1 in stock (Inventory is live and accurate)

  • Land: Domaine Hubert Lignier is deeply rooted in the renowned vineyards of the Côte de Nuits, particularly Morey St Denis, Gevrey Chambertin, and Chambolle Musigny, with recent expansions into Nuits Saint Georges and Pommard. These areas are characterized by thin, clay and limestone soils that naturally limit crop yields, fostering vines that produce concentrated and expressive fruit. The estate adheres to "lutte raisonnée," using only organic compost and avoiding herbicide.
  • Wine: The 2021 Morey St Denis 1er Cru La Riotte follows the domaine's philosophy of expressing terroir. This wine, from the La Riotte vineyard located at the base of the Clos-Saint-Denis Grand Cru, benefits from the site's calcareous soil and tight-grained minerality. Aged in one-quarter new wood for 18 months, it balances formidable structure with restraint, showcasing layers of red fruits, delicate spices, and floral notes that speak to the land's unique characteristics.
  • People: The Lignier family's winemaking legacy dates back generations, with Laurent Lignier now at the helm following the leadership of his father Hubert and in the wake of his brother Romain's tragic passing in 2004. Under Laurent's direction, the domaine continues to marry traditional methods with sensible innovations. Practices such as green harvesting, use of "sélection massale" for vine propagation, and minimal intervention in the cellar—such as natural yeast fermentations and gravity-flow wine movements—are pivotal.
