The "Les Chaffots" vineyard sits on one of the most elite sites in Morey Saint Denis, immediately above the Grand Cru "Clos Saint Denis". The Ligniers own 0.60 hectare. Now that the vines have taken on a certain age (28 years as of 2012), this wine has begun to show the immense power and complexity that its terroir offers.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru les Chaffots has a very seductive bouquet, quite floral with wilted rose petals infusing the red cherries, orange sorbet and minerals. The palate is medium-bodied with fine ripe tannins and just when you think it is going to fan out it closes back in, clams up tightly to warn you that this is much too early. Afford this three years, maybe four in the cellar and it should reveal to be a super Morey-Saint-Denis.
