Domaine Hubert Lignier
- France Burgundy
Hubert Lignier, one of the Burgundy greats, was responsible for the incredible renaissance of this superb 9-hectare domaine in Morey-Saint-Denis. Today it is his son Laurent who runs the domaine, and together they reflect the very essence of great Burgundy. The estate is well-worthy of its mythical reputation and we are very proud to represent them. Aided still by the twinkling Hubert, Laurent is a modest, dignified man of serious intent and not easily deflected from his purpose. That said, he also possesses real warmth and humanity borne from experience and a gentle determination to steadily improve all aspects of the domaine. He works to organic principles in the vineyard with minimal intervention in the winery. The wines receive no racking after undergoing malolactic fermentation, and do not undergo fining or filtration. Oak use too is carefully measured with no more than 20-25% used on the top Premier Crus and 30% at most on the Grand Crus.
