|Village||Moulin à Vent|
From 60-100 year old vines in 8 different parcels higher up the slope than the Rouchoux, this cuvée now represents half the production of Thibault's Moulin à Vent domaine. Very deep colour, bright fruit, a viscous glossy look and feel. Structured but above all stuffed with fruit. Tasted at the Beaujolais focus seminar in June 2019 and looking superb. Well weighted but with lovely feel and drive. Drinking range: 2019 - L&S (Nov 2016)

Shimmering violet color. Intense dark berry and cherry qualities on the nose, with suggestions of candied flowers, licorice and smoky minerals building in the glass. Juicy and broad on the palate, offering intense, smoke-accented blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter with air. Sappy and impressively concentrated, finishing with powerful thrust, chewy tannins and strong, spice-tinged persistence.

A cut-price chance to try wine from Burgundy-based grower Thibault Liger-Belair’s project in Beaujolais. This is notably sumptuous and polished (and, coming from a warm vintage, high-ish in alcohol) yet also expresses a pleasing sense of place.Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph(Aug 2019)
A modern style, showing upfront, vibrant and chewy oak in a well-executed combination with forward fruit. Glossy, luxurious and enjoyable. Drinking range: 2018 - 2023 Rating: 91 Decanter Magazine(Jul 2017)
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.
