"This too is quite firmly reduced and unreadable. The sleek, intense and beautifully delineated flavors exude evident minerality on the firmly austere and impressively long if decidedly rustic finish. This is very Pommard in character and will need time to unwind." -Allen Meadows

"The 2019 Pommard En Brescul has a straightforward bouquet with earthy red berry fruit, quite elegant in style. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, a dab of spice and a pretty, peppery finish. Fine." -Vinous

"Offering up notes of plums, sweet berries, smoked meats and espresso roast, the 2019 Pommard En Brescul is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and vibrant, with lively acids and powdery structuring tannins; a little reserved on this encounter, as is often the case, it will profit from another winter in barrel. Lignier regaled me once agin with stories of the badger that inhabits this parcel, which readers may be diverted to learn is large, muscular and terrorizes one of the domaine's sturdier vineyard workers. 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" -Robert Parker

"This recently-planted 0.4ha holding is composed of two rocky terraces that Lignier purchased in 2014. The wine shows a pleasantly dark fruit on the nose and a firmly tannic, almost slightly rustic quality on the palate, which is not quite as lush and forward as the other wines from this producer."

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

Although the Lignier domaine is historically associated with the Côte de Nuits, their firmly classical house style melds beautifully with the mineral rigor of Pommard. Hubert and Laurent ventured into this zone during the period of uncertainty following Romain’s death, and this “En Brescul” comes from a 0.4-hectare parcel of 20-year-old vines on which the family has a 25-year lease. Effusively stony, this 2018 presents mouthwatering red fruits on a firmly mineral frame, with impressive concentration for its level. It was de-stemmed entirely and raised in 25% new wood.

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--
