This Gevrey Chambertin 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. It's made from 100% whole bunch and is a richly fruited and highly aromatic red Burgundy that can be approached in it's youth orr cellared for up to 15 years in my opinion. - Chris L
The Lignier family have deep roots in the village of Morey Saint Denis and own 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.
