Hubert & l. lignier red Burgundy 2017 Pinot Noir
Hubert Lignier is rightly known as one of the greatest producers in the heartland of the Côte de Nuits and this is a very high octane entry-level wine from a parcel of vines just south of Nuits-Saint-George and affirms its big-league viticultural credentials. The aromatics are bold with deep fruit intensity, high pinosity, and a meaty medium to full-bodied palate with a fine tannin aura. This is about as flamboyant as red Burgundy can be. Drink now to 2030.
