2015 Hubert Lignier Gevrey Chambertin (750ml)

Pinot Noir from Gevrey-Chambertin, Burgundy, France


The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin Village comes from an exchange of grapes with another grower and is sourced from two parcels. It offers plush red cherry, redcurrant and boysenberry jam scents on the nose that I feel could benefit from a little more complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, quite fine tannin and a brisk line of acidity. This feels linear in the mouth, quite strict for a 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin, although it will flesh out by the time this is in bottle.

89-91 points, Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (Issue # 228 - Dec 2016)

Healthy dark red. Spicy red berries and a coffee nuance on the nose. Supple, creamy and easygoing, showing more red than black fruits; from 100% destemmed fruit and distinctly round in style. Finishes with nicely ripe tannins, a touch of minerality and very good length. This should give early pleasure.

88-90 points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous (Jan 2017)
