The Wine

The CM VV 19 is from 2 micro parcels (Les Drazey and Les Gamaires) below Bonnes Mares planted in the 1950’s and 1960’s. A deep rich and generous Chambolle of great finesse and class.

87-89 points Vinous Media, Neal Martin ”The 2019 Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes contains 80% whole bunches this year. It shows a little sur-maturité on the nose with touches of tinned prune and California raisin tincturing the black fruit. The palate is more balanced with a sweet core of candied black cherry fruit intermixed with cracked black pepper and clove. That nose just needs to forage a little more restraint by the time it is bottled and then it will merit a higher score.

88-91 points Burghound "(from 50+ year old vines in Les Drazey and Gamaires; 80% whole cluster). A much less expressive nose reluctantly offers up pretty floral and ripe aromas of plum liqueur and various dark berries. The delicious medium weight flavors possess a caressing, indeed almost creamy mid-palate, that is highly seductive, all wrapped in a youthfully austere, mineral-driven and refreshing finale. This is lovely and worth considering."

91-93 points, Jasper Morris MW "70% whole bunch. The grapes come from Les Drazey and Gamaires. Complete ripe purple. The nose is not giving much, dense tight dark fruit with good acidity. The tannins are present but in balance with the fruit, dark red fruit, decent length."

About the Wine Maker

The Lignier family have deep roots in the village of Morey Saint Denis and some of the very best vineyard sites in this village.The Domane is under the care of Virgile Ligner. They also have tiny holdings in neighbouring Chambolle Musigny and Gevrey Chambertin. Virgile’s father and grand-father had always produced wine and sold it to negotiants until Virgile started working with his father in the early 1990’s and he decided to sell the wines himself. Now with almost 20 vintages of experience Virgile has moved the domaine to fully organic viticulture and is producing what many believe to be the best wines of this prestigious village. In the last 10 years Virgile has modified his wine-making using whole-bunch vinification ranging from 30-100?pending on the vintage and the vineyard. He has also reduced the percentage of new oak (mostly Seguin-Moreau and Francois freres) for maturation with most wines seeing around 30% making its effect seamless in the final wines. He also completed a new winery back in 2013 that enables him to work with temperature control and to gain a very gentle extraction of tannins for all his wines. This results in wines are showing great precision and energy with remarkable perfume and also beautiful fine tannins and very silky structure. They are wines which are often very seductive at a young age which also clearly have the potential for ageing superbly. This very young domaine is now regarded among the very best in the Cotes de Nuits!
