Notes from Rosenthal Wine Merchant:

"Among Lignier’s ever-impressive trio of Morey-Saint-Denis premier crus, “La Riotte” tends to be the most feminine, gentle, and lithe. Located on a gentle part of the slope at the foot of the grand cru Clos-Saint-Denis, the vineyard is full of small stones, and the wine boasts a firm, tightly woven minerality from which all of the other elements of the wine seem to flow. The wine is marked by a beautifully spice-inflected, floral nose, but the palate is chiseled and tensile at the moment, demanding a bit of patience. Firm but filigree tannins frame a very long, ringing finish, promising great things down the road."

Winemaking
Grapes are destemmed, cold soak maceration for about 5 days followed by fermentation in open-top cement tanks that allow manual pigéage, natural yeasts, lasting 15 to 20 days, aged in up to 50% new wood for 20-24 months, no fining or filtration. All work in the cellar that requires movement of the wine is done by gravity; the wines are never pumped.
