2013 Les Rouchaux Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair

Grapes Gamay
Colour Red
Origin France, Beaujolais
Sub-district Beaujolais Villages
Village Moulin à Vent

From the bottom of the slope, sands and stones. A less extended vinifcation to give a wine which will be ready quite young. Very pretty nose, quite full, bright and precise, quite firm. Not the sweetness of fruit of some years, but compensated by a great sense of clarity. Drinking range: 2015 - 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.

There is a slightly leafy character to the earthy red and dark berry fruit aromas. The middle weight flavors possess a lovely sense of energy and fine detail that continues onto the attractively textured, complex and relatively refined finale. This is really quite good and should drink well both young and fully mature. 2018+ Rating: 88-91 Allen Meadows, (Jan 2015)

One parcels of 2 hectares; deeper 1-1.5m of sand and silt and blue granite. 3 weeks of vatting and just 2 pigeage. An easy style of wine, fresh and round and juicy with plenty of red fruit on the finish. 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.
