This is still a bit aromatically raw as there are residual fermentation aromas in evidence. There is good verve, detail and concentration to the delicious and solidly complex middle weight flavors that possess lovely balance and length. This is a relatively refined version of the appellation. 2018+

Plump, juicy and resonant in the glass, the 2012 Moulin-à-Vent Les Rouchaux stands out for its purity of fruit and open, supple personality. Dark red cherry and plum notes ring out in a beautifully expressive and generous Moulin a Vent with tons of near-term appeal. 2014-2018

Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair have purchased eight prime parcels of vines in Moulin-a-Vent. The grapes were sold off in 2008 because they felt it took more than just one year working with the vines to get them to perform. 'My objective was not to buy a domaine, but to buy vineyards in different spots. What is very important for me', says Liger-Belair,'is to showcase the difference between each type of granite and each exposure.' Two refrigerated trucks a day delivered fruit to be pressed in Nuits-Saint-Georges (all destemmed in the 2009 vintage and only gently pumped over to 'infuse', never punched down) and raised in used barriques.
