Professional Reviews

Burghound

BH 94
"A broad-ranging nose features notes of violet, lavender, tea, dark cherry and plenty of earth and game nuances. The sleek but notably more powerful big-bodied flavors possess excellent concentration in the context of what is typical for the 2017 vintage, all wrapped in a stony, muscular and solidly persistent finish. As is the case with a number of wines in the range, the tannins are coarse and grippy but they should soften and round out with extended cellaring which by the way this will definitely require."

Robert Parker

RP 97
"The king of the cellar, Lignier's 2017 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru is superb, wafting from the glass with a complex bouquet of red and black cherries, cassis, warm spices, incense and grilled game bird. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, layered and complete with striking depth and dimension, rich but satiny structuring tannins and excellent structural tension at the core, concluding with a long and penetrating finish. It's a magical wine that will merit ardent pursuit when it's released next year."

Decanter

"Lignier's 0.99ha holdings in Monts Luisants and Fremières were hit by hail in 2017, so Laurent reduced the amount of stems to 20%. This is not a blockbuster grand cru, but it's still a stylish, nuanced wine with well handled 30% new oak and detailed, silky tannins."
