Domaine Hubert Lignier Morey St. Denis les Chaffots 2013
|France, Burgundy, Morey Saint Denis

"Les Chaffots" is the muscular, brooding counterpart to the more elegant "La Riotte" above, offering an immensity of structure and ruggedness of fruit that allows the wine to age effortlessly for decades. It is even more profoundly mineral-driven than "La Riotte," with a deeper register to its spicy, meaty aromas, and an almost shocking intensity and concentration on the palate. This is rich and broad, but still amazingly graceful-beautifully "old-school" in its demeanor.
