2004 Domaine Lignier-Michelot Morey St. Denis

Some of the folks over at Wine Berserkers have been participating in a tasting where each week a different village is focused on, and folks drink and post about the wines. Last week, Gevrey Chambertin was the focus; this week, Morey St. Denis was in the limelight. I played along an opened a nice little village wine from Domaine Lignier-Michelot. No mean greenies this time.

The wine showed a dark and dusty nose with some tobacco and iron. There is a tight mineral spine with austere red fruit notes. A lot of power in this villages. And no greenies! Needs an hour in the decanter to show up. Nice enough and some upside probably. I like it in this range and was happy with the showing.
