To make the wines of Domaine Hubert Lignier, the grapes are sorted by quality, when picking, grapes that do not look good enough are thrown away. The winery is very traditional and certainly adheres to the classic methods of wine making; the stem is removed manually and the fermentation takes place in an open tank made of cement so that 'pigeage' (that is the traditional method of pressing grapes by stamping with feet - washed of course!) can be used as a pressing method . The fermentation is fairly long, lasting 15-20 days, while at most wineries it is no longer than 2 weeks. For the 'village wines' between 20% - 30% new oak is used with 18 months in barrel and for the Premier and Grand Crus about 50% new oak is used with 22-24 months in barrel.

The Lignier morey-saint-denis presents all the class of this exceptional terroir: elegant aromas, delicate texture, complexity, long length. It is true that the town of Morey-Saint-Denis is home to no less than five Grands Crus and this proximity, added to the house's know-how, gives this brilliant Pinot Noir cuvée. Everything is done by hand and no chemicals or fertilizers are used for this wine. The fermentation takes place with natural yeasts in cement tanks. The aging takes about 20 months in oak barrels (about half is new oak).

The Morey St Denis 1er Cru Clos Baulet comes from old grand cru vineyards of only 0.66 HA that always produce very small berries. The wine offers a bouquet of red and black fruits, dark ground notes, raw cocoa and pencil carefully framed with new oak. On the palate it is full and multi-dimensional, with a deep core of fruit and a lovely juicy mouthfeel that continues into the long finish. The tannins are beautifully integrated with the fruit.

The wines of Domaine Hubert Lignier are nicely summarized by the Hubert himself, he says: 'What is Hubert Lignier's style? Wines that bring pleasure, sometimes emotions but never taste the same. Wines we love to taste and drink."

FACT: That the high level of Hubert Lignier and specifically this wine has not gone unnoticed, testifies to the fact that LVMH (Luis Vutton Moet Hennessy) acquired the purchase of the last harvest (2021) from the Cosson family.
