Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru Clos des Ormes is Domaine Georges Lignier's flagship wine. The vineyard lies immediately below Clos de la Roche and it is often described as a mini version of the Grand Cru.
 
In winemaker (and nephew of Georges Lignier) Benoit Stehly's hands Clos des Ormes displays a multi-faceted palate combining delicacy and power. Each year we see the domaine's unique style develop further proving Burgundy does not have to be big, rich and extracted to be wonderful.

The 2016 was a big success and we are delighted to follow it up with an equally good 2017. 

Tuesday night I had the pleasure of tasting the 2017 so I could write my tasting note. Benoit's wines are special - he has a unique and beguiling style. No big extraction and heavy oak here - just wonderful aromatic fruit and a long, long finish.

Not only is the wine a delight but it is very well priced for a Premier Cru. And today it is even better value as instead of the usual 15% Pre Arrival Discount we offer this wine at a 25% discount. Get your order in today and save!

Darren Harris: 
Cherries and minerals dominate the nose but below there there is an intriguing orchestra of incense, flowers, rose water and sandalwood. Exotic in a beguiling manner. This wine has great nervosity - it is spring loaded with the freshness of 2017 driven by a fine and very long acid spine and a mineral/saline tang. Everything is there to ensure a long and stylish future.

Jancis Robinson: 
Light cherry red. A dusty red-fruit fragrance. Tangy wild cherries, really wild. Tight and mineral on the palate, sinewy and incredibly long, athletic. Great tension and very fine tannic texture and freshness. A slightly ascetic style and delicious with it. 
Drink 2025-2032. 17/20

Domaine Georges Lignier Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru Clos des Ormes 2016

Our original allocation sold out and we managed to get some additional bottles from the domaine which we will ship with the 2017's.
However, we do have some Magnums in stock.
Darren Harris: Nose of plums, spice, vanilla. Not particularly dark as is typical of Benoit's wines but with many layers and nuances dancing across the palate. It combines the juice of 2016 with rose, red fruits, cool stoney minerality and a lovely, fine mouthfeel. Power and grace. Long and precise with a medium firm finish. 

750ml Landed Price $148.50
Pre Arrival Price $126.50
