The Lignier 2011 spent 20 months in barrel before being racked in May of 2014, in preparation for the bottling in June and July. Laurent Lignier believes 2012 is a great vintage, 'very dense and from a very small crop, down 25 to 30% from normal. The season was less sunny than 2009, and thus the wines kept good vibrancy.' The longer elevage, he added, gave the wines higher-than-average levels of volatility, in the range of 0.5 to 0.6 grams per liter, but it's not at all a fragile vintage. On the contrary, said Lignier: 'It should be a great vintage for aging owing to the strength of material and the freshness.' Potential alcohol levels were in the high 12.5% to 13.5% range, and the Ligniers did almost no chaptalization.
