  • 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'...

    Dark ruby. A powerful, highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh dark berries, candied flowers and Asian spices, and a minerally nuance adds vivacity. Sweet, spicy and focused on the palate, offering juicy boysenberry and cherry compote flavors that spread out gracefully with aeration. Suave, seamless and powerful yet lithe, displaying excellent finishing clarity, subtle tannins and a whiplash of sweet blue fruit.

    Strong reduction flattens the nose. Otherwise there is good richness to the fleshy and relatively forward middle weight flavors that possess good punch and detail on the well-balanced finish.
