Description

Domaine Lignier Clos de la Roche Grand Cru is made from 1.05 hectares of vines that Domaine Lignier farms in this prestigious appellation. Domaine Lignier was established at the beginning of the 20th century has remained family-owned ever since. Georges Lignier (cousin of Hubert Lignier) set out to make the best and most important domaine in Morey Saint Denis. The estate has since passed though his son and grandson, Bernard and Georges, and, most recently, Georges’ nephew Benoit Stehly arrived at the property in 2002 after having completing his oenology exams. The estate now comprises some 16 hectares of vineyards spread over 17 appellation. Most of the vines now have an average age of at least 50 years. The Clos de la Roche appellation covers just under 17 hectares split between 30 estates. As mentioned above, Lignier has just over one hectare producing around 5000 bottles per vintage. Domaine Lignier Clos de la Roche Grand Cru is made in the traditional way. After manual harvest and sorting the grapes are destemmed prior to a pre-fermentation cold maceration for 3 to 5 days. The wine is then fermented for 4 or 5 days followed by 3 or 4 days on the skins to extract tannins, anthocyanins etc. The wine is then pressed into 228 litre oak barrels, 50% of which are new, where it is aged for 18 months.
