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'...

(destemmed): Bright medium red. Reduced nose hints at red berries and spices. Then juicy and penetrating on the palate, conveying lovely intensity and energy to the flavors of redcurrant, cherry and crushed rock. In a savory style, with moderate flesh. Juicy and imploded in the early going but the tannins are suave and the wine spreads out subtly to dust the palate on the back end.See detailed press review

Reduction once again renders the nose unreadable. By contrast there is good freshness, intensity and precision to the delicious flavors where the supporting tannins are actually relatively fine in the context of an Aloxe 1er, all wrapped in a complex finale that delivers sneaky good length.See detailed press review
