2016 Thibault Liger-Belair
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Thibault's 1st vintage from this vineyard.. 10% Whole bunch 0.9 HA form 9 plots, - should get up to 20 'pieces' in a good, steady vintage. Lovely broad feel. Sweet fruit. Mostly 80 year old vines. Youngest are 40+. Really sexy and upfront. Not overripe - but just 'bosh here you go' creamy, smooth and very pretty. Violet and blue fruits, floral. Easy yet somehow fine and delicate strains to it. Precise and direct but still very 'Chambolle' says Thibault. 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.
(2016 marks the first vintage for this wine that is sourced from 5 different lieux-dits; 30% whole cluster). A pretty and airy nose blends notes of red cherry, dark raspberry, spice and a hint of violet. There is fine intensity to the highly energetic middle weight flavors that display fine length. This is mildly rustic but overall it’s a quality Chambolle villages. Drinking range: 2023 - Rating: 88-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2018)

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.
