2018 Les Grands Chaillots Thibault Liger-Belair Successeurs
|Sub-district||Côte de Nuits|
Lovely balance - 'just so'. Aromatically no that developed, but the weight is perfectly judged and the tannin to match it is spot on. As Eric says, this is 'one of the best Bourgogne Chaillots we've made'. L&S (Nov 2019)
*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.
The 2018 Bourgogne Grand Chaillots is a mix of Chambolle-Musigny and Nuits Saint-Georges fruit, and it had been racked two weeks prior to my visit in December. It has a pretty raspberry and cranberry bouquet, floral in style, with subtle vanilla notes emerging with time; you cannot detect the 20% whole bunch. The medium-bodied palate offers sappy red fruit, and the whole bunch lends freshness and a subtle pepperiness toward the finish. Very fine.

Nicely knit and quite dramatic for a Bourgogne Rouge. You wouldn’t go wrong with this, a wine that should give flashy pleasure. Ripe but not excessively sweet. QGV Drinking range: 2022 - 2029 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2020)
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.
