Domaine Lignier-Michelot, Clos de La Roche Magnum, 2011

Domaine Lignier-Michelot 2011 Clos de La Roche Magnum is a rich red Burgundy that offers powerful layers of sweet fruit, chocolate, spice, oak and earth character with great complexity and balance, full body and a long finish.

“Good bright, full red. Brooding aromas of black cherry, spiced meats and licorice. Dense, sweet and concentrated on entry, showing a blacker fruit character than the Faconnieres, then full, rich and horizontal in the middle palate, displaying a fine-grained texture and no heaviness. The dusty tannins reach the front teeth. Riper and longer than the Faconnieres but I don’t find quite the same grip or energy. This one may drink earlier.”
Vinous (92 points)

“There is enough wood to notice though it does not dominate the ripe plum, black cherry, cassis, warm earth and abundant spice nuances. There is outstanding richness to the big-bodied and overtly powerful flavors that possess a suave mouth feel before culminating in a firm, long, balanced and superbly complex finish. Well worth considering.”
