The Lignier family has deep roots in the village of Morey-Saint-Denis and own some of the very best vineyard sites in this village and in two neighbouring villages, Chambolle Musigny and Gevrey Chambertin. Virgile’s father and grandfather have always been producing wine, selling it to negotiants, until Virgile started working with his father in 1992. Today, Virgile is producing what many believe to be the best wines in this prestigious village.
“What Virgile is looking for in his wines?: “Wine with good fruit, good ripeness and a good balance.”
The wines of Le Domaine Virgile Lignier-Michelot is dramatic and opulent, with sappy cores of fruit, excellent expressions of terroir, and the balance and structure to allow graceful aging in the cellar.
