Georges Lignier Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru 2006
I’m not winning with top Burgundy lately.
This has been sitting in my (climate controlled at Wine Ark Sydney) cellar cage since release, so no qualms with the storage. A bad bottle is always the consideration. That or I’m doomed…
A little terracotta on the edges here. This is a drying and quite ferrous, with blood and bone bottle age characters and then a firm, almost metallic tannic finish. Lots of tannins, which fill out the finish, but the fruit, again, has largely departed. Length is great, but any generosity is missing. All bones, no flesh.
Best drinking: 2012. 16.5/20, 88/100. Would I buy it? No.
