  • About this winery

    Thibault Liger-Belair comes from a great winemaking family that has deep roots in Burgundy: he is a direct descendant of the Napoleonic General Louis Liger-Belair, who acquired the Chateau de Vosne in 1815 when he married Ludovie Marey, whose family had been Burgundy negociants since 1720. Youthful, passionate and always full of ideas, Thibault trained as an oenologist, but had his start in the wine industry as a wine buyer. He is also a former rugby player with a genuine 'down to earth'...

    (from a huge 2.10 ha parcel). A floral, cool and restrained nose once again only reluctantly offers up notes of plum, red berries and pungent earth that exhibits barely discernible hints of wood spice. There is good muscle to the powerful and almost painfully intense big-bodied flavors that offer excellent richness and drive on the strikingly long, well-balanced and beautifully well-delineated finish. This moderately austere effort should be excellent if you have the patience to wait.

    Stephen Tanzer, March 2016

    Bright, dark red. Very pure but youthfully subdued aromas of raspberry and flinty minerality. Silky and fine-grained but at the same time taut, displaying terrific inner-mouth energy and floral lift. Wonderfully precise already but this is still an infant. Really echoes and rises on the aftertaste, where the very smooth tannins coat the front teeth. Very firm, even youthfully strict, but not at all dry. A potentially outstanding vintage for this bottling, from a crop level of just 15 hectoliters per hectare.
