Lignier-Michelot Clos De La Roche Grand Cru 2004
Domaine Lignier-Michelot has been in Morey St. Denis since early in the twentieth century, during most of that time though the domaine sold its entire production to négociants until the 90's. The current winemaker is: Virgile Lignier, who joined his father Maurice in 1992, and is the fourth generation to run the family property. Full ruby-red aromas of black cherry, smoke and spices. Smooth in texture and fresh, with flavors of red fruits and dark chocolate. Round and silky but not at all heavy; long finish with fine tannins.
