First time trying this producer, and was very impressed. Bright, serious, and delicious.

One of my least favorite tasting terms but makes sense here..."pain grillé." Plus primary red fruit.

2005 Lucie and Auguste Lignier Clos de La Roche

Decanted 3hrs. First Clos de La Roche ever!

Nose: black cherry and spice on nose. Still tight
Ripe fruit on palette with some sour cherries. Big depth. lots of tannins on the finish.

I put it in the fridge and tried it again on day 2 at room temp. It had just a little more perfume to the nose but didn't taste much different. I was hoping it would have opened up more.

I've only had 1er cru and village MSD to compare it to and I'm guessing this needs more time?
The 1er cru wines were 2005 and had more perfumed noses with excellent depth. palette was perfectly balanced in my opinion.
