Burghound

BH 93
"There is enough reduction to blur the fruit though the notably denser medium-bodied flavors that display focused power and muscle on the succulent but serious finish. This slightly rustic effort is almost always one of Lignier's best and it is again in 2018." -Allen Meadows

Antonio Galloni

AG 94
"The 2018 Morey-Saint-Denis Vielles Vignes 1er Cru, which is sourced from Les Faconnières and Les Chenevery, includes 30% whole-bunch fruit and one-third new oak. It has an intense nose of blueberry, black cherries and wet limestone scents that seem to burst from the glass. The medium-bodied palate delivers supple tannins and a velvety smooth texture, with beautifully integrated oak toward the seductive finish. Gorgeous." -Vinous

Robert Parker

RP 94
"Unwinding in the glass with a deep, youthfully reserved bouquet of cassis, plums, rich soil tones, dark chocolate and warm spices, Lignier's 2018 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Vieilles Vignes is medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with a deep and textural core, lively acids and a long, mineral finish. Serious and elegantly muscular, this is a long-haul proposition, and I will be adding some to my own cellar." -Robert Parker

Decanter

D 95
"Laurent Lignier combines fruit from two Premiers Crus - mostly Les Faconnières with 25% from Les Chenevery - to produce what he calls 'our emblematic cuvée'. It's a beautifully judged marriage of terroirs, with rose petal and lily aromas, considerable concentration and minerality, fine-boned tannins and a poised, balletic finish."

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

This special cuvée is perhaps the most consistently exceptional wine of this domaine, with a depth that is always generous and appealing. It has it all: presence, length, power and finesse. The grapes for this wine are sourced from a contiguous parcel of .53 hectares that traverses the two 1er Cru sites of “Les Faconnieres” and “Les Chenevery” which sit immediately beneath the Grand Cru “Clos de la Roche”, and possesses that ineffable Grand Cru stature. The vines were planted in 1947 and 1960.
