2015 Morey-Saint-Denis, Chaffots, Hubert Lignier

Côte de Nuits, 1er cru

$125.00 per Bottle


12 Bottles




"Bright ruby-red. Dark, vibrant aromas and flavors of cassis, blackberry, licorice and violet pastille. Wonderfully silky and thick but with surprising inner-mouth definition and lift; this is higher in acidity than the preceding 2015s, with a full four grams per liter. A fruit bomb with terrific early sweetness, a touch of saline minerality and a long, firmly tannic yet refined finish." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com

"The 2015 Morey-Saint-Denis Les Chaffots 1er Cru has a slightly disjointed bouquet at first, a little leaner than I would expect given the precocity of the vintage, although this may be entering a dumb phase. The palate is well balanced, with lightly spiced, sappy red berry fruit and impressive detail and precision toward the finish. With aeration, the aromatics do improve, resulting in a potentially very fine Morey-Saint-Denis that just needs three or four years in bottle. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting."
