Morey-Saint-Denis, Les Chaffots--Vintage 1993
10 bottles per lot
Morey-Saint-Denis, Les Chaffots--Vintage 1993 Côte de Nuits, H. Lignier In original carton "The lower level wines of a grower's portfolio are often mean, nasty, and barely average in quality. That is not the case with this domaine. Moreover, Lignier's three village wines, Chambolle-Musigny, Morey St.-Denis, and Gevrey-Chambertin, are all among the finest village wines I have ever tasted. The Morey St.-Denis is a bigger, fuller, more mineral-dominated wine, with loads of earthy black fruits and spice in the nose, good body, and tannic structure. It will last a decade. Along with the wines from Domaine Leroy, Domaine Maurice and Claude Dugat, and Domaine Ponsot, the other unequivocal great successes in 1993 are the wines of Hubert Lignier. His wines are atypically super-concentrated, powerful, rich, sweet, expansive red Burgundies that exhibit the structure, but none of the harsh tannins of many 1993s. Moreover, they possess layers of highly extracted, rich, creamy fruit that could only have come from physiologically ripe grapes and low yields." Robert Parker Wine Advocate #100 (Aug 1995) 10 bottles per lot
