2017 Lignier Michelot Bourgogne
Virgile Lignier grows fruit in some of David's favorite appellations but produces such small quantities that it is very difficult to get hold of them. Recently in a Venice, CA restaurant, the sommelier suggested he try this Bourgogne and it clearly was among the best he has tasted. After a lengthy pursuit, TAWC was able to acquire a limited allocation.
From vines planted in the 1960s from two parcels — one in Morey the other in Chambolle — and using 20% whole cluster fruit and about the same amount of new oak, Virgile’s Bourgogne is a notable performer in its class. Scents of red pinot fruit, dark earth, and spice lead to fresh flavors that linger nicely on the palate.
