95 points Decanter
Immediately seductive, this is produced from a small parcel of vines which are more than seventy years old, located in Mazoyères-Haut, just along the Route des Grands Crus and across from Latricières. Initially a bit closed, the wine reveals its opulent, dark plummy fruit, sweetness and velvety texture on the palate, with a finish that lingers seemingly forever. (Drink between 2024-2049)
93-95 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Deeper and more structured than the Griotte, Lignier’s 2019 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru unwinds in the glass with notes of blackcurrants, cherries, sweet soil tones, wilted rose petals and spices. Medium to full-bodied, rich and layered, it’s ample and voluminous, with velvety tannins, succulent acids and a broad, expansive finish.
93-95 points Vinous
Situated in Mazoyères, the 2019 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru is well defined on the nose with precise black fruit laced with blueberry and light violet aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit laced with graphite, quite strict and linear with good grip on the finish. One of the more structured Charmes-Chambertins that you will find in this vintage. Just one barrel made in 2019.
Stored on it’s side in a climate controlled cellar since purchase.
