MOULIN À VENT
2016 Les Rouchaux Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair, Beaujolais
In great contrast to the VV, this comes from the deepest soils at the bottom of the hill. Always the most supple of his Moulins and it is very attractive this year. Nicely ripe, red berries and some fleshier soft weight - but restrained and tidy too.. 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.
(40% whole cluster). A fresh, cool and appealingly layered nose reflects notes of mostly dark berries and plum where additional breadth is present in the form of earth, floral and pepper wisps. There is notably more volume and mid-palate concentration to the vibrant and muscular medium-bodied flavors that possess both fine depth and length. This moderately structured effort is worth considering. Drinking range: 2022 - Rating: 89-92 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2018)
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.
