The Lignier-Michelot family has very deep roots in the village of Morey-Saint-Denis in Burgundy. They own some of the very best vineyards here and in the neighboring village of Chambolle-Musigny and Gevrey-Chambertin. Virgile's father and grandfather had always produced wine and sold it negociants, but in 1990, Virgile had other ideas. He decided to sell the wines themselves. With now over 20 vintages of experience, Virgile has moved the domaine to fully organic viticulture, and is producing what some critics say are the best wines in Morey-Saint-Denis.

Virgile has modified his winemaking in the last few vintages to include whole bunch vinification, ranging from 30-100%, based on the vintage and vineyard. He has also reduced the percentage of new oak used in maturation to around 30%. A new winery enables exacting temperature controls to gain very exact extractions of tannins. All these wines are approachable when young, and have excellent aging capability.

The vineyard En La Rue De Vergy is located just below the Grand Cru Clos de la Tart. 30% whole bunch vinification.

Remarkable energy and dimension. Aromas of cassis, violet and plum with a menthol note. Medium in body with mineral notes, a kiss of oak, and lively fruit. Pair this with game, roast chicken, lamb chops, cassoulets.
