"Aromas of ripe plum, spice, damp earth and the sauvage are trimmed in admirably discreet wood. There is fine richness and volume to the sleek, intense and well-detailed middle weight flavors that are quite saline in character, all wrapped in a relatively powerful, palate coating and long if mildly rustic finish. This too is an impressive villages and recommended." -Allen Meadows

"The 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Seuvrées comes from 1.02 hectares of vines, a massale selection planted by Laurent Lignier’s grandfather just after the war. It has a complex bouquet that defies its Village Cru status thanks to the venerability of the low-yielding vines, mineral-infused black fruit, a touch of graphite and undergrowth. The palate is medium-bodied with good concentration. Quite structured black fruit laced with graphite towards the finish. Excellent - but serious!" -Vinous

"Another of Lignier's more serious communal bottlings is the 2019 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Seuvrées, a medium to full-bodied, concentrated and youthfully tightly wound wine that's evocative of plums, cassis, rich soil and dark chocolate. This will reward some bottle age. The 2019s, according to Laurent Lignier, possess "all the characteristics of great Pinot Noir," and that's an analysis with which I would concur. He has once again produced a fine vintage for both his domaine holdings and négociant sources—the latter, amounting to some 3.5 hectares of vines, now clearly distinguished in our reviews. As readers will know, winemaking is pretty classical at this address, with a short cold maceration, two to three weeks' maceration with one pigéage and one rémontage per day and maturation in barrels, some third of which are new—if possible, without racking—for fully 22 months in the domaine's cold cellars. Lignier began picking on September 16, and alcohol levels range between 13.5% and 14.7%, the latter extreme representing the exception rather than the rule. Tasting through the wines, the vast majority of which were in barrel and had not been racked, the most obvious analogy was with the domaine's 2015s at the same stage—but I look forward to revisiting them from bottle to confirm that impression." -Robert Parker

"Just over 1ha of vines was planted almost 70 years ago here, across the Route Nationale from Mazoyères, by Laurent Lignier's grandfather. The fruit ripens well and after fermentation, with about 20% whole clusters, gentle punching down and ageing in cask (20% new), the result has an evocative cherry fruit, with a pronounced mineral/saline character and a silky, lush texture. Marvellous."

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

The parcel in “Les Seuvrées” is in the southern tier of Gevrey and sits immediately beneath the Grand Cru “Mazoyeres Chambertin”. This wine, one of the most important of the domaine in terms of size, is a bit more sturdy than the Morey Saint Denis and is a real show-stopper, displaying its classic Gevrey meatiness. The vines are old: planted between 1938 and 1966.

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!
