At 1.4 hectares, the domaine is the largest single proprietor of this great vineyard (total of 6.6 hectares in size), which is slightly elevated on the slope compared to its immediate neighbors. This setting receives a more significant downdraft of air from the “sousbois” above which keeps the vines cooler and yields a wine of exceptional elegance and balance. The Georges Lignier vines cover two parcels, with vines in one planted 70 years ago, and the vines in the other parcel planted 50 years ago. Benoit Stehly renders a supremely fine example of the complex character of this renowned vineyard which has feline grace to its presence that is seductive and alluring – a wine that shines when married to the finest of cuisine.
