Domaine Lucie et August Lignier

Lucie and Auguste are the children of the late Romain Lignier and Romain’s widow Kellen who has been running the domaine for her children despite the opposition of her in-laws. The situation has not been definitively resolved at the time of writing, though there appears to be at least a truce if not a final understanding. Almost all the domaine (apart from 1.1 hectares of Morey-St-Denis Les Sionnières and a couple of other very small plots) relies on sharecropping agreements, mostly with Hubert Lignier, so these may could still come to an end.

The wines are currently being made in cellars, formerly the local cave-cooperative, under the hotel restaurant Castel Très Girard. Holdings:
