MOULIN À VENT
2015 La Roche Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair, Beaujolais
|Village||Moulin à Vent|
Very little soil here, getting quite high up the slope and on pink granite. Still rich, it avoids heaviness, with a tension and lively sense of minerals and movement. 'it's one of the highest in alcohol, but one of the freshest', says Thibault. Drinking range: 2021 - L&S (Nov 2016)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
A single parcel at the top of the hill. Not much top soil, just 20 cm of pink granite. This is ripe, but straight. Rich, but nicely defined. I do like this. Near the windmill and yes you get the freshness. Just less than 16% alcohol...but this does not overwhelm or make the wine heavy at all. My favourite.Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing(Dec 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.
