"Possessing enthralling aromas of deeply spicy cherries, Lignier's multi-dimensional Charmes-Chambertin is a fabulously concentrated, elegant, powerful, medium-to-full bodied, berry and cherry-filled wine gently touched by some sweet oak. It is spectacular, yet it will be better with 4 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2010. This note is the result of tastings I did in Burgundy between January 7 and January 29. The wine was tasted from cask, not bottle. Pinot Noir, a fragile varietal, reacts poorly to fining, filtration, and careless bottling techniques, I recommend caution when considering buying a red burgundy based on cask samples. I called it as I tasted it, and hope the bottled wine reflects the quality of the samples I was provided." - Pierre Rovani, robertparker.com (Jun 26, 1997)
