This, too, is a recent acquisition by the domaine. This small parcel is planted to vines that are fifty-five years of age (as of 2012). The site is in a superb location sitting just beneath the great 1er Cru "Les Cailles". The first vintage produced by the Ligniers is 2010.

Wine AdvocateThe sophomore 2011 Nuits-St-Georges Poisets was purchased by a consortium of five friends of Laurent Lignier in February 2010. What attracted them is a plot of vines planted just after the war that yield small, often millerande berries. The bouquet is very pure with a lifted bouquet of dark cherries and a touch of yellow plum, hints of chalk developing just behind. The palate is medium-bodied with a tannic entry. This is a masculine Nuits-St-Georges that is powerful in the mouth, but well-balanced and endowed with a surfeit of freshness on the finish. But it needs three or four years to lose its nascent rusticity. Drink 2016-2023.
