93 points Tim Atkin, MW (Decanter): "As the name of his wine suggests, Laurent Lignier gets his fruit from three different parcels - Les Porroux, Clos Solon and Les Chenevery - to make a super village cuvée. Stylish and well balanced, it's made with 25% stems and 20% new wood. It's wonderfully scented and pure with a long, sappy finish. 2022-2028. (Nov 2018)"

90-93 points Fine Wine Review: "Three different vineyards from north, south, center of Morey (Chenevry, Clos Solon, and Porroux); vines are 50-80 years old. Blackberry fruit, spices, medium-weight, good structure. Long. (12/11/18)"

92 points Jasper Morris, MW: "One plot each to the north south and centre, Pourroux, Chenevery, and Clos solon, all with at least 50 year old vines going back as far as 1936 for part of Chenevery. Similar very pretty pink purple. Impressive density through the middle, a bright little touch of the savoury, definitely more strength than the Chambolle. Needs more time but I am impressed. (Mar 2019)"

90-92 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2017 Morey-Saint-Denis "Trilogie," which includes 25% whole bunch fruit from vines that tend to suffer millerandage, offers vivacious dark cherry and raspberry coulis scents on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, a fine bead of acidity, good focus and a mineral-infused finish that delivers a pleasant sour edginess. Excellent. Drink: 2022-2035. (Jan 2019)"

91+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2017 Morey 'Trilogie' is a step up from the very good Trés Girard, as the vines here are older (fifty to eighty years of age) and Monsieur Lignier was able to use twenty-five percent whole clusters for this cuvée. The bouquet is bright and very precise, delivering a fine constellation of plums, red and black cherries, a nice touch of spice from the stems, complex soil tones, vanillin oak and a gentle topnote of cocoa powder. On the palate the wine is pure, deep and full-bodied, with a very elegant profile, a lovely core, fine soil signature and a long, sappy and complex finish of suave tannins and impressive grip and bounce. 2022-2055. (Nov/Dec 2018)"
