Hubert Lignier, Clos de la Roche 2003

The Clos de la Roche 2003 from Hubert Lignier is a quite drinkable 2003. Made from 35 to 45 year old vines located in Monts Luisants. In the bouquet cherries, blue berries, strawberries and prune with a hint of sous bois. On te palate quite finely balanced with a good focus. The tannins are silky but is providing some structure together with the fine minerality. The fruit is slightly stewed – aromas of very ripe/slighly overripe fruit – typical 2003. The old school Lignier style suits this vintage … not a great wine though … but a quite enjoyable 2003.
