(vinified with 70% whole clusters): Moderately saturated medium red. Musky, soil-driven scents of strawberry, raspberry, mocha, underbrush and leather lifted by spicy high notes. A juicy, classic, very expressive style of Morey-Saint-Denis with enticing sweetness and considerable charm, not to mention a pleasing light touch. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins. Lignier told me he carried out a green harvest in all of his Morey premier cru vineyards owing to the full crop loads but still produced an average of 46 hectoliters per hectare.
