  • 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'...

    (30% whole clusters). A discreetly floral nose exhibits attractive spice elements on the primarily red and dark berry fruit aromas. There is good vibrancy to the markedly generous yet detailed medium-bodied flavors that possess fine complexity on the lightly saline-inflected and solidly persistent finish. Lovely.

    (Liger-Belair vinified this wine with some whole clusters--30%--for the first time, in an attempt to extend its finish): Good deep red. At once wild and delicate on the nose, offering perfumed scents of raspberry, fraise des bois and minerals. Sweet, plush and fine-grained but with a light touch for its density. Finishes with a saline element and good mineral lift. The whole clusters add an herbal accent but the wine does not come across as green.
