MOULIN À VENT
2014 Les Rouchaux Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair, Beaujolais
|Village||Moulin à Vent|
Vines at the foot of the hill. White sand and silt. Very bright and expressive purple fruit. Suave velvet juice, dense on the palate, still fresh and with tension. Drinking range: 2016 - L&S (Nov 2015)
*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.
Strong reduction flattens the nose. Otherwise there is good richness to the fleshy and relatively forward middle weight flavors that possess good punch and detail on the well-balanced finish. (88-91)/2019+ Drinking range: - 2019 Rating: 88-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2016)
The 2014 Moulin à Vent le Rouchaux was totally reduced on the nose, although the palate is clearly adorned with precise, red and black fruit, perhaps more understated and nuanced than the les Perrelles. I like the focus on the finish here, moderate length and yet detailed. Drinking range: 2017 - 2025 Rating: 89-91 Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com (Dec 2015)
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.
