2020 Hubert Lignier Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes
Domaine Hubert Lignier is one of Burgundy’s finest addresses, producing wines that show profound depth, complexity, and structure with capacity for wonderful development in the cellar. Winemaking is quite traditional, with grapes being de-stemmed and fermented in open-top cement tanks with natural yeasts. Elevage is around 18 months for the Bourgogne and village wines, while the premier and grand cru wines remain in barrel for 20-24 months. All wines are bottled without fining or filtration.
Aromas of sweet berries, plums, peonies, orange rind and raw cocoa introduce the 2020 Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes (négoce), a medium to full-bodied, ample and perfumed wine built around lively acids and velvety tannins. This has turned out especially well.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 21, 2022)
The 2020 Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes comes from two terrors and is an acquisition of fruit. The nose is quite backward at first and does not quite slip into fifth gear. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet red cherry and strawberry entry, fine acidity, quite fleshy as you would hope from a Chambolle with the 30% whole bunch imparting a welcome spiciness on the finish. Very fine. Drink 2025-2042.
