36 barrels instead of the normal 60, from about 4.5 hectares. All destemmed. Really delightful pinoté fruit, all tautly constructed, sweet-fruited and floral - bien fait. Drinking range: 2024 - 2030 L&S (Oct 2022)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles of wine (or 9 litre equivalent) or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified (4.5 litres) to get the discounted 'case price' for each bottle.

Juicy and smoothly, sweetly fruity. This has a certain beaujolais-like build with its fine acidity. Good fun for early drinking but with sufficient structure to develop further. Drinking range: 2024 - 2030 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - (Jan 2023)

From Bourgogne vines below Nuits and Chambolle, plus Hautes Côtes vines in Arcenant, which are high trained. 4ha in all to supply this important cuvée. No punching down, just turn over the cap with a fork. A pretty, light purple with a graceful pinot on the plumper side for the vintage. Very peppery at the finish, a signal of the vintage with a fresh orange-red fruit, and some acidity. Drinking range: 2024 - 2027 Rating: **** 87-88 Jasper Morris - Inside Burgundy  (Nov 2022)

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.
