Tasting Notes

**Note: from a .14 ha parcel of 40+ year old vines**
''Producer note: As I wrote last year, if you have the sensation that you're looking at the range of wines that used to be released by Domaine Hubert Lignier, you're right, ''
Classic ruby. Reduction knocks the nose down but the red berry fruit flavors are more firmly constructed than those of the prior wine as well as being cool, round and detailed though they tighten up very quickly on the precise if somewhat chewy finish that is also a bit dry. I have accorded this wine a slightly wider ratings spread than normal as this is very awkward today and tough to read.
