An elegant, pure and exuberantly spicy nose blends notes of essence of red and dark berries with wisps of earth, lavender and a background hint of oak. The equally pure middle weight flavors possess excellent mid-palate concentration along with good minerality on the suave and refined finish that delivers very fine depth and persistent for a villages level wine. One to check out. Drinking range: 2029 - Rating: 89-92 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2021)
No whole bunches as Thibault found out in 2009 that it doesn’t work here. Brisk fresh deep purple. Very beautiful nose, classically Vosne with purity and precision. Starts very prettily and gains in substance, excellent acid balance, a very stylish not too powerful Vosne. Tasted: November 2020 **** Rating: 91 - 93 Jasper Morris - Inside Burgundy (Jan 2021)
Cask sample. Bright reddish crimson. Really very pleasing combination of Vosne energy and fully ripe fruit that speaks for itself and is not dominated by any winemaking elements. Great length and already nicely in balance. Supremely appetising. Drinking range: 2024 - 2036 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2021)
Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair
Thibault Liger-Belair has two hectares in Les Saint Georges, the vineyard which gives Nuits the rest of its name, and 60 ares out of a total of 4 hectares of the Grand Cru Richebourg, as well as a good holding in the Clos Vougeot and some well-placed village wines. The vineyards are a good start, but it is Thibault himself who has catapulted this domaine straight into the very top echelons of Côte de Nuits domaines from his first vintage (2002). Thibault was trained as an oenologist but first worked as a wine buyer. He has come to wine making with a wide experience of wine buying, and has had the advantage of having discussed wine-making for many years, with the benefit of his oenological background, with some of the best winemakers of the world. Viticulture is biodynamic (since 2005), yields low but not ludicrously low, everything is pragmatic, so that he should be doing just what is necessary and no more. He uses 40-50% new wood maximum. The wines are bright, pure, focused, aromatic and elegant without lacking anything in the way of stuffing.
