Professional Reviews


BH 95
"A mildly toasty and ripe nose features notes of plum liqueur, red cherry, plum and a plentitude of spice elements. The succulent and more concentrated broad-shouldered flavors possess both good richness and a sophisticated mouthfeel before culminating in a sneaky long, compact and built-to-age finish that carries its elevated alcohol surprisingly well."

Antonio Galloni

"The 2019 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru comes from the two terroirs, the majority from Mont Luisants and one-third from Fremières. The vines were planted in the Sixties and the late Fifties respectively. It has a beautifully defined bouquet with black cherries, raspberry, briary and rose petal aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, concentrated as you would expect since it was cropped at around 25hl/ha with wonderful minerality on the finish." -Vinous

"The 2019 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru is very promising, wafting from the glass with notes of blackcurrants, cherries and wild berries mingled with notions of loamy soil, orange rind, warm spices and new oak. Full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, it’s lively and concentrated, with ultra-refined tannins and terrific depth at the core, concluding with a long, saline finish." -Robert Parker

"Produced from old-vine fruit from Monts Luisants giving tiny yields. Produced with about one-third whole clusters and one-third new casks for ageing, the wine opens with a complex nose showing black cherry fruit and a savoury, almost gamey edge. The initial impression on the palate is silky and accessible, but the tannin here is immense, although very fine-grained. There is impressive freshness and a finish that goes on and on. Lovely. A superb Clos de la Roche."

What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...

The Ligniers own just under a hectare in this hallowed grand cru, split among two plots: 0.62 ha. in the climat of Monts Luisants, and 0.28 ha. in Les Fremières. Laurent’s grandfather Henri planted the first vines here in 1955 and propagated the remainder of the holdings via selection massale between 1960 and 1966. The site’s particular terroir—a few inches of pebble-strewn topsoil above solid limestone rock—yields a wine of unfathomable mineral intensity, with rugged spices and a profound sense of earth framing its flinty, smoke-tinged core. One of the most iconic wines in our portfolio, Lignier’s Clos de la Roche is also one of the greatest wines in Burgundy. Spending seven seasons in barrel (one-third new), it should be cellared with utmost patience.

Focus On: Burgundy

Burgundy has long been the world's most famous wine region. But, underneath all the prestige, this region can be hard to get to know.

While Burgundy offers many great trophies from top producers in well-known villages like Vosne Romanee and Puligny Montrachet, it also offers excellent values to anyone willing to explore beyond the famous names. Our collection– one of the largest in the U.S. – has plenty of both!

From the very basics of Burgundy's regions and wines to the specific terroirs of individual single vineyards--
everything you need to know about Bourgogne is just a click away!
