2010 Grand Cru Thibault Liger-Belair
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
There is really lovely refinement to the precise, energetic and full-bodied flavors that possess good power on the focused, balanced and persistent finish. This is not an especially big or powerful wine by the typical standards of the appellation but it is all the same quite serious and built to age over the medium-term. 2020+ Rating: 90 - 93 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (May 2017)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or buy 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified (as a full pack) to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
The Charmes-Chambertin has wonderful precision and mineralité on the nose with fresh strawberry, orange peel and dark cherries all perfectly combined, though it is not an “intense” perfume. The palate is medium-bodied with an appealing ripe texture. There is a savoury note in the background, with fine weight on the crisp, strawberry finish. This is a very composed Charmes.

Thibault Liger-Belair has dialled back the oak in his wines in 2010, allowing the fruit to express itself. This is a very classy Charmes: racy and perfumed with stony minerality and succulent, sweet fruit. 2016-25 Rating: 95 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com

Very refined beautiful fruit again, great density and persistence . David Way (www.winefriend.org)
Light crimson. Very heady, layered nose. Sweet start and lots of interest here. The sort of wine that will probably go through many different stages in its life. Fresh and vital. One of the most interesting 2010s I have tasted in London. And I don’t think you will be forced to wait all that long for it either! 2015-2030 Rating: 18.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com
The lack of the word 'domaine' in the name signals that this is a négociant wine from Thibault Liger-Belair. On the whole Thibault buys grapes having tended the vines with his own team, so that the wines can be seen as domaine wines in all but name.
