Notes from Rosenthal Wine Merchant:
"The Domaine Hubert Lignier has long had a reputation for its fine wines known for their concentration, depth and structure. The “Grand Chaliot” lieu-dit is situated just south of Nuits-Saint-Georges, and the Ligniers work 1.25 hectares of vines there planted in 1987. Given its proximity to Nuits-Saint-Georges, this wine possesses a seriousness and mineral depth rare for a Bourgogne, particularly impressive in its amplitude and intensity. A mere 10% new oak allows the energetic and spice-tinged flavors to shine through unimpeded."
