High-value wine here – I also have their bourgogne, I must see how it compares.
2007 L&A Lignier, Bourgogne Passetoutgrains
There’s already a deposit of hard sediment forming in this bottle – real wine then! Medium, medium-plus cherry-red – perhaps even a hint of gamay purple. The nose is all ripe pinot to start, though after an hour I think the gamay can be glimpsed at the core – note I wouldn’t have ‘glimpsed’ it if I hadn’t seen the label! Nicely mouth-filling and silkily textured. The acidity brings a lip-smacking slightly sour-cherry impression to the fruit that makes this a refreshingly moreish tipple. A very sneaky extra creaminess evolves in the mid-palate too. Clean and perfectly packaged to deliver super early summer drinking…
