    February 21, 2023 - A superb example of this great wine and to me showing lovely already with a great acidity and orange peel tang that keeps it really fresh and measured (especially side by side the 03). Others thought it needed more time I thoroughly enjoyed it today already but no doubt this is still on the up and could add another point or two.

    January 5, 2023 - Splendid nose of great Pinot: basket of crunchy red fruits and rose petals on an earthy background

    The palate is that of a cold Burgundian beauty that I love so much. It is first extremely textured, vaporous like silk and with a natural presence. The structure is not to be outdone with an attack on red fruits. We bite into blueberries, cherries and raspberries at the same time. The freshness of the aromas is magnificent, this bottle is clearly 10 years younger. Then come more rocky aromas, the wet stone stands out clearly and mingles with the faded rose which takes over at the end of the mouth. The wine has a magnificent balance between laser-cut acidity and dense juice, the whole stretching perfectly. Great majestic finish where wet stone and mineral salts take over, all over a magical length.

    Grand Pinot, a lord of Burgundy!

    February 23, 2022 - The nose is digging two handfuls into a basket of fresh red berries and crushing them as you bring it up to smell. perfect level of acidity and generous red berry. The wine has gorgeous lively palate. The weight on the wine is well balanced and the juice of the vintage shines bright. Gave it a quick double decant before dinner for sediment.

    June 5, 2021 - Solid but short of expectations. Showing mostly dark fruit and some oak. Feels like there's good material here but not really showing itself yet. 92?

    September 19, 2020 - Drank this along with a 2002 Thibault Liger Belair Richebourg:

    Lignier Clos de la Roche was the clear winner for me, although one of the people in our group preferred the Richebourg.

    Lignier had a beautiful nose of rose petals, fruit, wood and earth, and they all layered together so nicely. It was just a joy on the nose. The palate was similarly complex with maybe a hint more earth. Very long finish. Could have drunk this wine all night.

    The TLB Richebourg on the other hand was a bigger wine with much more structure in the mouth and forceful tannins. For me, the tannins cut the finish way too short. Nose was very nice but just not as complex. My sense was that this wine had tremendous potential but needed another 5-10 years to really reach it.
