lignier-boisset-morey-nuits-2008-2007

2008 L et A Lignier, Morey St.Denis Vieilles Vignes
Medium-plus colour. The nose is a lovely deep and slightly musky affair – above is a clean red-fruit note. Beautifully fresh and intense but with just enough cushioned padding to the palate to bring balance – you will have to do plenty of chewing to find the buried tannin. This is just so ebulient today that I wonder if it can ever show better(?) As the mid-palate narrows with age I expect this might become a little mouth-puckering, but today, yum!
Rebuy – Yes

2007 JC Boisset, Nuits St.Georges Aux Lavières
Medium medium-plus colour. The nose has a floral aspect that vies with a deep core of perfumed red fruit. Fresh enough and shows a little more fat than the Morey at it’s side. Just a little fine tannin and a long line of fruit and mineral flavour that runs through the core into the finish. The flavour expands nicely in the finish – a baby peacock. Very lovely and very tasty in a ripe but fresh-enough fruit style – quite rare this in 2007!
Rebuy – Yes

Very different these two – but only different – I have no preference, except for more!
