MOULIN À VENT
2014 La Roche Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair, Beaujolais
|Village||Moulin à Vent|
Even thinner soils as one goes higher up - this has only twenty to thirty centimetres of pink sand on top of the pink granite. Very near the summit - thirty metres from the famous windmill for which the appellation is named. In a different register again, a much more sinewy 'masculine' style, the sheer concentrated density and the sense that it is all of a piece is remarkable. Drinking range: 2018 - L&S (Nov 2015)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
A potent nose of reduction and wood overshadows the underlying fruit. On the palate this is more restrained and tighter yet the mouth feel of the medium weight flavors is sleek, detailed and powerful, all wrapped in a wonderfully long, linear and highly complex finale. This is terrific though note that it’s going to need bottle age. Drinking range: - 2024 Rating: 90-93 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jan 2016)
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.
