Domaine Lignier-Michelot 'Les Faconnières' 1er Cru Morey-Saint-Denis 2020

Domaine Lignier-Michelot has been part of the landscape of Morey St. Denis since early in the twentieth century, but like so many of its neighbors throughout the Côte d’Or, during most of that time the domaine was content to sell off its entire production to négociants. The current head of this fine eight hectare domaine, Virgile Lignier, who joined his father Maurice at the domaine in 1992, is the fourth generation to run the family property, and was instrumental in the family beginning to offer their wines for sale in bottle
  • Variety: Pinot Noir
  • Vine Age: Planted in 1948
  • Terroir: Above Les Chenevery on richer clay soils
  • Viticulture: Organic (not certified)
  • Vinification: 50% de-stemmed, cold pre-fermentation maceration, rapid de-vatting. Aged for 12 months on fine lees in barrel (30% new), 5 months settling in tank, unfiltered.

For Virgile, this terroir, especially the soils, are worthy of Grand Cru status. "You just can't make bad wine here."

The name of this parcel refers to the falcons that circle around the vineyard. Work in all of Virgile's vines and the cellar has been carried out in function of the lunar cycle since 2010.
