Available for Same Day Delivery (or Pickup) in Manhattan.
Morey St. Denis specialist Lignier-Michelot is branching out, and is now working with grapes sourced from Murgers in NSG -- a fine site in the northern sector of the village that borders Vosne Romanee. This is just starting to open up and is a good choice for checking out with a good decant.

Professional Reviews

Burghound

BH 90-93
"A thoroughly sauvage-inflected nose offers up fresh and cool aromas of wild dark berries and warm earth. The rich, full-bodied and dense flavors possess a plenitude of dry extract that helps to buffer the firm but not hard supporting tannins on the balanced finish that flashes excellent persistence. This mildly rustic effort should drink reasonably well after 5-ish years or so."

"Healthy bright red. Very black on the nose and totally different from the Morey-Saint-Denis Les Chenevery that preceded it in my tasting, offering scents of cassis, black cherry and licorice. Then juicy and penetrating in the mouth, with its impression of lively acidity accentuated by a firm tannic spine. Blueberry and spice flavors carry through to a crunchy, somewhat brooding finish, with the tannins building with air but avoiding austerity. There was a good bit of fruit in '16 from the second set of buds and Lignier noted that he didn't use any overripe grapes. " -Stephen Tanzer
