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'...

More than a third of the crop was lost to hail, but the end result is still impressive, partly because of the low yields. A mix of clay and mostly-limestone dominated parcels, this shows subtle spice from whole bunches, chalky minerality and stylish, polished tannins.See detailed press review

(made with 40% whole clusters). A brooding, earthy and very serious nose consists of ample floral influences on the ripe and fresh wild red berry scents that are also trimmed in noticeable sauvage elements. There is fine richness to the dense and equally somber broad-shouldered flavors that possess a relatively supple mid-palate though the beautifully long and well-balanced finish tightens up in a rush. Not surprisingly this powerful and slightly rustic offering is quite youthfully austere at present and will definitely require at least a decade of patience.See detailed press review
