Virgile Lignier is one of those rare Burgundy vignerons whose wines somehow miraculously get better with each successive vintage. We have been tasting his wines critically since 1999 -- they were great then and they are even better now. How does he it? Through constant improvement in the vineyards and at the winery, year after year. By growing better grapes, by selecting only the best, by staying out of the way in the cellar, by becoming better at everything he does. The wines have a remarkable purity and depth of flavor yet are delicate and light on their feet - "airien" is a good word.

"(40% whole cluster). As it usually is, the nose is more reserved and more typical of a classic Morey with a brooding aromatic profile of liqueur-like red and black fruit, underbrush, game and earth that are also trimmed in just enough wood to merit remarking upon. There is excellent richness to the powerfully bodied and tautly muscled flavors that culminate in a focused and firm but not really austere finish that delivers impressive length. Here too at least some patience will be beneficial because while the mid-palate is generous, the finish is serious." -Allen Meadow

"The 2015 Morey St Denis 1er Cru les Cheneverys includes 30% whole bunch and 30% new oak this year. The bouquet is very refined with a tinge of wet clay infusing the mulberry and cranberry fruit, gently unfolding in the glass whilst maintaining fine delineation. The palate is very well balanced with a spicy, white pepper-infused opening. The exerts good grip in the mouth, very chalky in texture with impressive depth and focus on the finish. This is excellent." -Neal Martin
