Georges Lignier Clos-St-Denis 2015. One of the wines of the vintage

"A wine of compelling purity and class, this beauty should be long-lived." Stephen Tanzer
You only have to read Stephen Tanzer's tasting note to know just how good the Clos-St-Denis from Domaine Georges Lignier is in 2015. "Deep, bright red. Urgent crushed cherry and red raspberry fruit aromas are complicated and lifted by rose petal, white pepper, citrus peel and sexy oak; an essence of Clos Saint-Denis. Rich, layered and deep but also wonderfully brisk, with an exhilarating element of blood orange contributing to the impression of razor-sharp definition. Finishes with fine-grained, noble tannins, subtle rising length and a magically weightless impression."

His words sum up the splendour of this light-on-its-feet, yet intense and complex Red Burgundy. Having tasted the wine again last week I can tell you it is a very special bottle and a wine to put a few extra away in the cellar.
Our allocation is rapidly running out. If you wish to secure some of this wine, which we think is one of the wines of the vintage, please act quickly.

One of the parcels that make up the domaine's holdings of the Grand Cru is literally in Benoit Stehly's back garden. This old vine cuvée sees 50% whole bunches and shows the freshnes and fragrance of the Grand Cru. Silky, vivacious and skilfully oaked, with raspberry and loganberry sweetness and a light, tangy finish. 2022-32

Vinous: Stephen Tanzer: 
Deep, bright red. Urgent crushed cherry and red raspberry fruit aromas are complicated and lifted by rose petal, white pepper, citrus peel and sexy oak; an essence of Clos Saint-Denis. Rich, layered and deep but also wonderfully brisk, with an exhilarating element of blood orange contributing to the impression of razor-sharp definition. Finishes with fine-grained, noble tannins, subtle rising length and a magically weightless impression. A wine of compelling purity and class, this beauty should be long-lived. The yield here was 30 hectoliters per hectare and the pH is 3.4, according to Stehly. Incidentally, this estate is the largest owner of vines in Clos Saint-Denis, at 1.49 hectares. Stehly picks this fruit in the morning because he uses a smaller tank in which it would be harder to chill the grapes. He continues to sell some of his Clos Saint-Denis to Lucien Le Moine, Marchand-Tawse and Jadot, noting that his clients supply their own barrels and take the wines, with their lees, in January. (He also sells some of his Clos de la Roche.) 93-96 Points

2014 Clos-St-Denis
8 bottles left
Opinions are split about which is the best red vintage 2014 or 2015. Most critics opt for 2015 but Burghound says his vote is for 2014.
Either way wine lovers have two great, but very different vintages from which to choose.
The 2014's from Domaine George Lignier are on the way. We have 8 bottles of the 2014 Clos-St-Denis available at the Pre Arrival Price.
Tim Atkin MW: One of a stunning, hauntingly graceful series of wines from Georges Lignier in 2014, this is another very pale wine that seduces the nose and the palate. Spicy, perfumed and almost indecently velvets, this has raspberry and wild strawberry sweetness and effortless focus. 2019-26.
