Magnum Morey-Saint-Denis Trilogie Hubert Lignier 2019


Mixed Case $233.75

93 points Decanter

The old vines in 2020 yielded an inky purple wine, with a ripe (between 13.5–14%) blackberry fruit, extracted very gently with almost no punching down. Despite the concentration, there is lots of finesse here, producing a charming result. Trilogie is consistently among the most impressive village-level wines in Morey. It is produced exclusively from old vines between 50–85 years of age. The majority of it is Chenevery, blended with parcels in Clos Solon and Les Porroux along the premier cru La Bussière.

90-92 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Offering up aromas of cassis, red berries, warm spices and loamy soil, the 2020 Morey-Saint-Denis Trilogie is medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with a deep and youthfully tightly wound core of fruit that’s framed by lively acids and powdery tannins. This is likely to emerge as Lignier’s finest communal-level bottling this year, but it will also require the most patience. Laurent Lignier began his harvest on August 27, reporting below-average yields and finished alcohols between 13% and 14%. Once again, the result is a fine vintage for both his domaine holdings and négociant sources—the latter, amounting to some 3.5 hectares of vines, now clearly distinguished in our reviews. As readers will know, winemaking is pretty classical at this address, with a short cold maceration, two to three weeks’ maceration with one pigéage and one rémontage per day and maturation in barrels, some one-third of which are new—if possible, without racking—for fully 22 months in the domaine’s cold cellars. The 2020s are more primary and tightly wound than Lignier’s 2019s, but they’re similar in terms of ultimate quality and are well worth seeking out.   (01/2022)

90-92 points Vinous

From three different lieux-dits, the youngest vines planted in the Fifties, the 2020 Morey-Saint-Denis “Trilogie” has a beautifully-defined bouquet with iris flower and touches of peony infusing the red fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins. There is fine backbone here, quite serious despite its status with a granular finish. Excellent. (12/2021)

89-92 points Allen Meadows – Burghound

Pretty and ripe aromas are composed by essence of red currant, cherry, earth and a whiff of herbal tea. There is again good verve to the richer and more concentrated flavors that possess a beguiling texture while exhibiting good power on the ever-so-mildly rustic finale. This is an excellent Morey villages with the aging potential to match. *Burghound Outstanding Top Value! (1/2022)

90 points John Gilman

The 2020 Morey St. Denis “Trilogie” from Domaine Lignier is also an excellent village wine in the making, with the bouquet wafting from the glass in a sappy blend of black cherries, black plums, dark chocolate, a lovely base of soil tones, pigeon, coffee bean and cedary oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nicely structured, with plenty of mid-palate sappiness, fine soil inflection and grip, ripe, chewy tannins and a long, complex and very nicely balanced finish. (Drink between 2026-2065) (12/2021)
