Here Thibault has used a little whole bunch fermentation of add a bit of tension, it has a rich earthy fruit, lost of body. Richer and with good complexity.

7 parcels. A little higher and less depth to the soil of pink sand and white sand…old vines and 7 parcels. 15-20,000 bottles. Lovely splashing fruit at the beginning of the palate; straight mid palate; good energy, more tension and density here, but with sweet succulence.

Reduction flattens the fruit though there is good freshness and verve to the denser and more structured medium-bodied flavors thanks to the abundant amount of dry extract, all wrapped in a powerful, serious and long finish. This is a rustic and old school MAV but if you have the patience this is well worth your attention. 2020+


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.
