Domaine Lignier-Michelot Grand Cru Charmes-Chambertin
The fruit for this cuvée is sourced from vines in Mazoyères – in the south of the appellation bordering Morey-St-Denis – and is farmed using organic and biodynamic methods.
This Grand Cru Charmes-Chambertin is made using whole bunches and cold maceration. The wine is aged for 12 months in oak almost all of it new before being bottled unfiltered.
NOTE: after the 2016 vintage the vines were sold so this is likely the last we’ll see of this Grand Cru Charmes-Chambertin from Domaine Lignier-Michelot.
Vivid coloration ranging from deep ruby to black-cherry. Their aromas suggest strawberry, blackcurrant, and gooseberry as well as fruit pits, liquorice, and spices. Violet, moss and underbrush are also likely to be present. On the palate, power, opulence and elegance unite to make a full and complex body, full of sap and voluptuosness textured. Keeping potential is 10 years minimum. Although these sumptuous Grands Crus share a family resemblance, each has its own distinctive nuances.
