This estate dates from the start of the 20th century when Georges Lignier inherited some vines from his father. It remains a family enterprise to this day. Benoit Stehly - the nephew of Georges's grandson - now runs the estate, which covers 16 hectares that includes 50 parcels of vines in 17 different communes.
Beautiful purity of ravishing fruit here. A real blueberry note along with the wealth of flowers and so many things hard to describe. Dimension and riveting interest. Palate is controlled, a fraction closed, showing a wealth of very fine tannin. This has air within: a lightness of touch that creates something properly wonderful. Long, fresh wine of superb definition. Gorgeous! Bowes Wine original note
"Savoury dark and rocky, lifted by fresh, dark fruits. Serious, sober yet elegant, needing time to become more expressive. Tannins are really fine and dry. Long, understated." Julia Harding MW
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
