The debut release of this overachieving wine from a recently acquired parcel. It is planted with 55 year-old vines in the portion of Nuits-St.-Georges that Burgundy expert, Clive Coates, calls "the greatest climat in Nuits-Saint-Georges". He is referring to Les Saint-Georges itself, which is located diagonally from the climat of Les Poisets. And right above Les Poisets is another excellent Nuits-Saint-Georges vineyard, one of them all, Les Cailles. Lignier crafted a beauty. Outstanding structure and depth. Absolutely grand in this vintage.

"This is the first bottling that I have ever seen that notes les Poisets on the label, and if this superb 2010 is any indication of the quality of this terroir, this is a village parcel that I am going to keep an eye out for at other domaines. These old vines produce very, very small berries, which have turned out an elegant and very complex wine in 2010. The superb bouquet offers up a very pure melange of dark berries, espresso, a great base of soil, gamebirds and a topnote of woodsmoke. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish and very suave on the attack, with a great core of fruit, a fairly tight structure, tangy acids and excellent focus and transparency on the long and ripely tannic finish. A superb bottle that is also very much at the premier cru level of quality in this vintage. 2017-2040." 90+/100 John Gilman, View From the Cellar
