The Lignier family have deep roots in the village of Morey Saint Denis and own 10.5 hectares of some of the very best vineyard sites in this village,along with plots in the two neighbouring villages of Chambolle Musigny and Gevrey Chambertin. Virgile’s father and grand-father had always produced wine and sold it to negotiants until Virgile started working with his father in the early 1990’s and decided to sell the wines himself. 
In the last 10 years Virgile Lignier has modified his wine-making using whole-bunch vinification ranging from 30-100% depending on the vintage and the vineyard, and he has also reduced the percentage of new oak for maturation with most wines seeing around 30% making its effect seamless in the final wines. They are wines which are often very seductive at a young age which also clearly have the potential for ageing superbly. This very young domaine is now regarded among the very best in the Cotes de Nuits.

Lignier's Morey Saint Denis Vieilles Vignes is made from a blend of three vineyards totaling around 1.5 ha with old vines planted 1946, 1948, 1950’s and 1980’s which lie in the middle of the appellation, from Tres Girard, Les Cognees and Bas Chenevery.

This is a Dry, Medium bodied wine with High acidity and Medium tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
