is currently backordered. You may still purchase it now but we won't be able to ship it until it becomes available again.
Region : Burgundy
Appellation : Clos Saint Denis
Vintage : 2008
Varietal : Pinot Noir
Estate : Virgile Lignier has been quickly moving up the ladder of the elite of Cote de Nuits producers. His knowledge and experience runs deep, but he remains very young at
heart and open to new things.
Quoting Becky Wasserman, "Virgile is a man with intensity and infectious energy." His wines can be described the same way.
Virgile has stock of the some of the best premier and grand cru sites in Morey.
Aside from aging beautifully well, his wines in their youth manage to deliver a tremedous
amount of pleasure, but also clearly show the intellectual component for those who need to experience that side of Burgundy.
Tasting Notes : Layers of dark fruit, minerals, spices and licorice take shape in this striking, multi-dimensional Burgundy.
The Clos St. Denis is at once powerful yet also delicate, but ultimately it is the more refined side of the wine's personality that comes through most eloquently.
The creamy, expansive finish is totally striking.
