MOULIN À VENT
2013 La Roche Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair
|Village||Moulin à Vent|
A foot of sandy soil and then red granite. Floral and red fruit scented nose, but the wine is quite firm and strict and in a style which demands to be kept a couple of years. Drinking range: 2017 - L&S (Nov 2014)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
(20% whole cluster). This is also markedly reduced which renders the nose unreadable. Though the medium weight flavors don’t possess the same level of concentration the mouth feel is markedly finer thanks to the more refined tannins that shape the linear and lingering finish. This is also quite good and worth a look. 2019+ Rating: 89-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2015)
A single parcel at the top of the hill. Not much top soil, just 20 cm. This has a good, tight, clipped palate with a pure, mineral finish. I like this. It has a purity and precision at the end. Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing (Nov 2014)
Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair, Beaujolais
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.
