Clos de la Roche Grand Cru 2016
Normal Price $455.95
Australia Day Price $250.00
12 bottles available
 
Lignier Roche Label
The World of Fine Wine:  
Grippy, with plenty of tannin, but underneath there are seductive aromas of truffle, incense, and black fruit. Very, very good. 98 Points
 
Jancis Robinson: 
More protected from cold wind than Clos St-Denis. Less elegant and more powerful than his Clos St-Denis. More Morey, he says.
Shaded ruby. Sweet and sumptuous on the nose. Very rich and lively with strong fruity notes - raspberries? Taffeta texture. No monster! 'It's still mine', says winemaker Benoît Stehly. Good mineral finish. Very clean. 
18/20

Clos-St-Denis Grand Cru 2016
Normal Price $363.50
Australia Day Price $199.95
9 bottles available

Lignier Clos-St-Denis labelThe World of Fine Wine: 
Beautiful, perfumed and balanced, with spice and incense, very aromatic and concentrated. Utterly seductive, and has some grip. To keep. 97 Points

Jancis Robinson: 
1.49 ha! 40% new oak. He recently changed oak sources. He is the biggest owner of the 6.3 ha. 45- to 70-year-old vines, always blended.
Limpid ruby. Good density with a mentholated note. Rich and powerful and layered and really rather majestic. Real beginning, middle and end. Subtle. Long and layered. Excellent balance. He says this best expresses what he wants to do. 17.5
/20
Tim Atkin MW: The domaine's holdings of Clos St Denis are comparatively extensive at 1.49 hectares. This was showing a little reduction when I tasted it in Burgundy and again in London, so it needs time in bottle. Showing the classic freshness of the Grand Cru, it's a balanced, subtle, focused wine with loganberry and red cherry fruit and savoury tannins. 2026-34. 94 Points

Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2016
Normal Price $470.50
Australia Day Price $299.00
5 bottles available
 
Lignier Charmes Chambertin Label Charmes-Chambertin is the rarest of Lignier's Grand Crus.  The domaine's holding is only 1/10 of a hectare which yields just over a barrel in a normal vintage. As you know 2016 was not normal and the quantities produced were even smaller.

Because of the small production it is seldom offered to the critics for evaluation.
Darren Harris: 
100% destemmed. Deeper colour than the Morey Clos des Ormes. Expansive nose of violets, anise and small berries. A little new oak. This is generous on the palate and fills the mouth in a luxurious, yet stylish, manner. The tannins are fine and long. This is really nice. (I gave it 2 ticks which is my way of denoting exceptional wines tasted in the cellars).
Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Combottes 2016
Normal Price $261.95
Australia Day Price $145.00
15 bottles available
 
Lignier Combottes Label 96
Sandwiched between the Grand Crus Latricieres-Chambertin, Charmes-Chambertin and Clos de la Roche this is one of my favourite vineyards and could easily be a Grand Cru if it was not for politics.

The World of Fine Wine: Dense and rich, lovely aromas, spice and earth. Complete, detailed and promising. 95 Points

Vinous: Stephen Tanzer: 
(Lignier is aging this wine--and his grand crus--in 40% new oak): Moderately saturated bright red. Deep, alluring aromas of cherry and crushed stone. A step up in intensity and penetration from the Clos des Ormes, offering juicy, savory flavors of strawberry, cherry, spices and stone. Nicely delineated, juicy premier cru with a firm spine and terrific floral length. Really captures the salty minerality of this well-placed premier cru. 90-93 Points

Chartron Corton Label
 
Domaine Jean Chartron Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2015
Save $153.00 today
 
Chartron's Corton-Charlemagne is a hidden gem. The production is tiny and it sits between the Premier Crus and the famous Montrachet Grand Crus in price so tends to get overlooked by many Burgundy lovers.

But a great wine it is. It is one that I always look forward to tasting at the domaine and I tend to agree with John Gilman's comment below.

We have 10 bottles of the 2015 available.

Normally $432.95
Australia Day Price $279.95

To order at the special price email darren@grandmillesime.com.au or luke@grandmillesime.com.au

John Gilman, A View from the Cellar:
The 2015 Corton-Charlemagne from Domaine Chartron is very, very strong this year and I actually prefer it to the Bâtard in this vintage! The bouquet is outstanding, soaring from the glass in a complex blend of pear, lemon, tangerine, chalky minerality, fresh almond, vanillin oak and just a hint in the upper register of the honeycomb to come with bottle age. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and racy in personality, with a rock solid core, excellent focus and grip and a very long, pure and vibrant finish. Excellent wine. 2018-2040. 94+ Points
