Lot #229. Hubert Lignier Clos de la Roche 1991

Description: Consists of 1 Magnum, 1.5L
Score: 96 RP.
"Lignier's remarkable 1991 Clos de la Roche is even more concentrated and powerful than his 1990. Opaquely colored with a promising but unformed bouquet of minerals, black fruits, and toasty new oak, there is significant tannin in this powerful wine. It displays magnificent concentration, sweetness, and definition, as well as that unctuous, thick, rich mid-palate and length that suggest exceptionally low yields and old vines. One of the superstars of the vintage . . ." Wine Advocate #90, Dec 1993
Provenance: The Palais Cellar
Notes: Very lightly scuffed capsule, lightly scuffed, nicked label.
