2016 Les Grands Chaillots Thibault Liger-Belair
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Peppy and nice. Juicy, grippy - but well shaped. Good bones. Ripe fruit but with just enough crunch. Sophisticated Bourgogne. L&S (Oct 2017)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Funky rich nose. Some refined oak influence. Difficult to separate the wine from the (burly) man. Rich with a memorable signature. Should please all but the most classical purist. Drinking range: 2021 - 2029 Rating: 16+ Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Feb 2018)
An exuberantly fresh array of plum, earth and pretty dark currant aromas leads to rich and surprisingly bold flavors that possess very good mid-palate density, all wrapped in a lightly stony and saline finish that is presently youthfully austere. Good stuff here and ageworthy too. Drinking range: 2020 - Rating: 86-89 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jan 2018)
The 2016 Bourgogne Les Grandes Chaillots comes from fruit from the new domaine that Thibault is now working with in Chambolle-Musigny since his own vines were completely frosted. It has a fresh bouquet with bright red fruit mixed with light violet scents, indeed a little Chambolle-like in style. The palate is sweet and candied on the entry with blood orange fusing with red cherries/kirsch notes with good delineation on the finish. Fine.

Thibault Liger-Belair Successeurs
The lack of the word 'domaine' in the name signals that this is a négociant wine from Thibault Liger-Belair. On the whole Thibault buys grapes having tended the vines with his own team, so that the wines are domaine wines in all but name.
