    ($106) Saturated ruby-red. Vibrant, deep aromas of blackberry, maraschino cherry, violet and minerals, plus a pungent citrus quality that adds further lift; this offers the refreshment value of an '06. Suave on entry, then sappy and energetic in the middle, with brisk flavors of black cherry, spices, herbs and mint nicely framed by well-integrated acidity. I like this wine's medicinal reserve. Finishes smooth, deep, fine-grained and very long, with dusty tannins and lovely aromatic lift.

    From immediately north of Les Millandes, Lignier's 2005 Morey-St.-Denis Les Faconnieres (the same site that informs Hubert Lignier's long-running hit, Morey 1er cru) offers diverse black fruits, brown spices, resin and saline notes on the nose, a rich, sappy, sweetly-fruited and formidably dense palate, and an invigorating finish with low-toned meatiness and pronounced chalk and brine minerality. This deserves watching over at least a decade.

    Slightly reduced on nose (but not a fault at this stage), then sweet allspice and cassis and cherries, Somehow a bit cardboardy or flat in the middle, then a bit hot on the finish. (JH)

    Loads of fruit for its age, with a hint of mustiness. Really well balanced with soft tannin's in the background.Lingering aftertaste. One of the best 2005 Burgundies I've tasted.
