The Burgundies of Domaine Georges Lignier 2002-2010

Old vines + new knowhow = fine wines at great prices

 

Lignier Roche Label Small This Ligniers have been vignerons since the mid 19th century. Today the domaine is owned by Georges Lignier with the winemaking and daily management handled by his nephew Benoit Stehly. This is a good thing as George had a bit of a reputation for being, shall we say, a little difficult at times. 

 

As has been the case with many old Burgundy domaines he expertise of the young generation has had a dramatic and very positive effect on the quality of wine. Benoit is making tremendous wines from some excellent old vine vineyards in Morey and Gevrey. Jasper Morris MW in Inside Burgundy comments about the resurgence of the domaine.

 

The domaine has considerable holdings in the Grand Crus Clos de la Roche, Clos-St-Denis and Bonnes-Mares (unusually located on the Morey side), Charmes-Chambertin as well as the largest holding of Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru Clos des Ormes (below Clos de la Roche) and Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Le Combottes (surrounded by Grand Crus). From Benoit's side of the family there is also a little Volnay and Pommard.

 

This is a domaine that is clearly on the rise. The wines have become very popular in the UK and across Europe. I like the way they speak of their terroir. And they are very reasonably priced for the quality - where else can you get Grand Crus from the Cote de Nuits for around $200 a bottle?

 

We have a fine range of wines available including some back vintages sourced from the domaine's reserve stocks. There are even a few 2010 Magnums still available!
