Georges Lignier is a third generation family domaine with enviable vineyards holdings, including the largest share of Grand Cru Clos Saint Denis. The family has a total of 16 hectares of vines, dotted over 50 premium parcels throughout Burgundy. In 2008, Georges's nephew Benoît Stehly took charge, "since which time the wines have become finer and finer" (Jancis Robinson MW). Burgundy expert Serena Sutcliffe MW concurs, “this domaine very often produces the essence of the (Pinot Noir) grape". Using handpicked grapes from his Premier Cru vineyards, carefully vinified, then aged in 30% new oak, Benoît has produced a long, complex wine, beautifully aromatic and expressive. Let it breathe before serving with rich game. Alternatively cellar.

"Tannins supple and friendly around a good fruit core. Generous and rounded" Julia Harding MW
