2018 Domaine Hubert Lignier Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Aux Combottes
1 in stock
This comes from a plot of 15 ares, the vines were planted in 1957. This vineyard is right on the Gevrey/Morey border and is surrounded by the Grand Crus of Latricières Chambertin to the north, Charmes Chambertin to the east and Clos de La Roche on it’s southern and western sides! The soil is composed of sand, clay and silt. The wines are concentrated and elegant, deep and complex. This vineyard produces wines that are a little closed when young, but with age blossom.
‘One of the most explosive wines in the range is the 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Aux Combottes, a beautiful bottling that soars from the glass with scents of orange rind, sweet wild berries, licorice and soil tones. Medium to full-bodied, succulent and supple, it’s ample and enveloping, caressing the palate with its generous core of concentrated fruit and its exquisitely refined tannins.’ 92-94 Points William Kelley eRobertParker.com 14.02.20
