"A cuvee produced from purchased grapes, the 2017 Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru bursts with expressive aromas of raspberries, orange rind, sweet rose petals and spices. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, layered and fleshy, with succulent acids and melting tannins. It's a charming, precocious Griotte that will drink well in its youth."
What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...
Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru: In 2014, Hubert and Laurent sourced grapes from a 50-year-old plot in this hallowed grand cru—a total of only two barrels of wine. Of the three grand crus issuing forth from Lignier’s cellar, this is the most elegant, airy, and feminine, emphasizing higher-toned spices and floral elements in its aromatics, and with a mineral-drenched, vibrant palate full of lift and energy. Nonetheless, its tightly coiled structure and slightly inward-facing demeanor signal the need for some cellar time in order for the wine to fully blossom. For many years, we offered wines from this same parcel when representing the Domaine des Chezeaux.
