Domaine Georges Lignier Bonnes Mares Grand Cru 2017
- Pinot Noir
- Red Wine
Light cherry red. Much sweeter and more red fruited than the Clos de la Roche with a touch of oak spice. Smells more gourmand, richer, fuller in the mouth and rounded with a very nice freshness at the core. Lovely balance between the generous fruit and the precise vibrant acidity. Very long. Finely textured, compact tannins clothed in bright fruit.
