Wine Critic Reviews for 2018 Domaine Hubert Lignier Gevrey Chambertin Les Seuvees

(Gevrey-Chambertin “les Seuvrées”- Domaine Hubert Lignier Père et Fils) The Gevrey-Chambertin “les Seuvrées” is again from older vines (sixty to sixty-five years of age) and they seem to have navigated the heat of the summer of 2018 better than those in le Reniard. The wine offers up a very refined nose, wafting from the glass in a mix of red and black cherries, a fine base of soil, gamebird, woodsmoke and a gentle topnote of mustard seed. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and beautifully structured, with suave, seamless tannins, a lovely core of fruit fine soil signature and a long, fine-grained and bouncy finish. This is good juice. (Drink between 2025-2055)

Lignier's 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Seuvrées is showing nicely in bottle, unwinding in the glass with aromas of plums, cassis, sweet soil tones, licorice, dark chocolate and spices. Medium to full-bodied, deep and muscular, it's concentrated and tightly wound, with a chassis of rich, powdery tannins and a lively spine of acidity. This will require patience.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 90+ RP
The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Seuvrées suffered some millerandage this vintage and produced particularly small bunches. It has a very perfumed, floral bouquet with earthy tannins imparted by the 30% whole-bunch fruit. The fleshy palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a silky texture and a gentle, caressing finish that is utterly charming.

Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.

Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
