WINE ADVOCATEThe 2010 Clos St. Denis is gorgeous. Layers of dark fruit, minerals, spices and licorice take shape in this striking, multi-dimensional Burgundy. The Clos St. Denis is at once powerful yet also delicate, but ultimately it is the more refined side of the wine’s personality that comes through most eloquently. The creamy, expansive finish is totally striking. The Clos St. Denis is made from equal parts estate and purchased grapes. This is one of the finest wines I have ever tasted from Virgile Lignier. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035.
Virgile Lignier began his harvest on September 24. Potential alcohols came in between 11.8 and 14%. The wines under 12.5% were lightly chaptalized by about a half degree. I tasted all of the 2010s from tank, where they were resting in anticipation of bottling, which was scheduled to start this January. Virgile Lignier told me he was quite surprised by the quality of the 2010s, especially the ripeness of the tannins.
