The domaine counts some highly regarded premier cru and grand cru vineyards among its holdings. The Lignier family has cultivated vines in Morey-Saint-Denis since the early 20th Century, but sold its grapes to négociants each vintage until 1992, when it began to bottle some of its own wines. The domaine has a little more than eight hectares (20 acres) under vine with several plots older than 50 years in its three premier cru sites, and younger vines in three grand cru vineyards: Clos de la Roche, Charmes-Chambertin, and a plot in Clos Saint-Denis so small it only produces a single barrel (production is often supplemented by buying in fruit from this site). Lignier-Michelot also makes village-level wine from neighboring Gevrey-Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny. No pesticides or herbicides are used in the vineyard and low yields are maintained through vigilant green pruning. Grapes are completely destemmed and undergo a five-day cold maceration, followed by a naturally occurring fermentation. Aging typically lasts from 12 to 16 months in barrels of varying ages, with the premier and grand cru seeing a third new oak. The exceptions is the Clos de la Roche grand cru, which in some vintages is aged entirely in new barrels.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-04-13T18:44:47-04:00","created_at":"2023-02-15T18:09:02-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_France","other_french wine","Other_Wine","Producer_Lignier-Michelot","Region_Burgundy","RK1402","Source_Hedonism0123","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_Pinot Noir"],"price":59899,"price_min":59899,"price_max":59899,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42782332289162,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2012 | Lignier-Michelot | Morey St Denis Les Faconnieres","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":59899,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/30_bebb8037-dc77-46c4-8daa-cd4ea65be328.png?v=1676502585"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/30_bebb8037-dc77-46c4-8daa-cd4ea65be328.png?v=1676502585","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2012 | Lignier-Michelot | Morey St Denis Les Faconnieres at CaskCartel.com","id":24238282309770,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.339,"height":257,"width":87,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/30_bebb8037-dc77-46c4-8daa-cd4ea65be328.png?v=1676502585"},"aspect_ratio":0.339,"height":257,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/30_bebb8037-dc77-46c4-8daa-cd4ea65be328.png?v=1676502585","width":87}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 2012 | Lignier Michelot | Morey St Denis Les Faconnieres\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAn intense and vigorous bouquet with mulberry, blackberry and undergrowth aromas that are detailed and quite captivating.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOrder from the Largest \u0026amp; Most Trusted Premium Spirits Marketplace! \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFeatured in\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eROLLING STONE\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eMEN'S JOURNAL\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUS WEEKLY\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eNOTICE:\u003c\/strong\u003e Many other small liquor store sites may end up cancelling your order due to the high demand, unavailability or inaccurate inventory counts.  We have partnerships consisting of a large network of licensed retailers from within the United States, Europe and across the world ensuring orders are fulfilled.   \u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eProducer:\u003c\/b\u003e Lignier-Michelot\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eRatings: \u003cspan color=\"#ff2a00\" style=\"color: #ff2a00;\"\u003eWA\u003c\/span\u003e | 93  \u003cspan color=\"#ff2a00\" style=\"color: #ff2a00;\"\u003eVN\u003c\/span\u003e | 92\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eVintage: \u003c\/b\u003e2012\u003cb\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eSize:\u003c\/b\u003e 750ml\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eABV:\u003c\/strong\u003e 13%\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVarietal:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e Pinot Noir\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eCountry\/Region:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e France, Burgundy\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c!-- split --\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eDetailed Description\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAn intense and vigorous bouquet with mulberry, blackberry and undergrowth aromas that are detailed and quite captivating.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003e\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #222223;\"\u003eReviews:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #9f250d;\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eWine Advocate\u003c\/strong\u003e:\u003c\/span\u003e Tasted blind at the annual 'Burgfest' tasting in Beaune.
