I followed advice; double decanted and left for 1 hour before pouring – hmmm…

2006 Lucie et Auguste Lignier, Morey St.Denis 1er Les Chaffots try to find this wine...
Medium, medium-plus colour. The nose is darkly-fruited, a little mineral and spicy – it almost smells tannic – very interesting and open, time makes it a little creamier and just a shade redder. Despite ‘smelling’ tannic, the considerable structure is almost entirely hidden under a smooth, slightly linear but intense dark fruit. There is an impressive extra dimension of faintly creamy, dark fruit that forms a reprise in the finish. Today it’s far from an elegant pinot – you will have to wait for that – but it is an exciting and rumbustious mouth-full of Morey – serious fun, in a glass.
Rebuy – Yes

    Rumbustious, eh? Thanks for the new word (to me at least), Bill. Good to hear Kellen’s suggested double decanting tip paid off.

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
