  • 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'...

    The 2014 Vosne-Romanée Aux Réas has a slightly smudged red cherry, crushed strawberry and damp earth scented bouquet, floral aromas developing nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, fine acidity, well balanced with a gentle grip on the persistent finish. I can see this ageing nicely and perhaps surpassing its showing from barrel.

    (destemmed; 42% new oak): Bright, dark red. Pungent raspberry and mineral aromas, along with a salty squid-ink reduction. Very intensely flavored, cool wine that nicely combines enticing sweetness with a strong stony element; lovely inner-mouth tension and perfume here. Finishes very firm and long, with the fine-grained tannins giving the wine grip while avoiding dryness. Today the noble reduction is keeping the wine fresh and energetic. An outstanding village wine in the making.

    Reduction. There is a seductive texture to the solidly well-concentrated medium weight plus flavors that benefit from plenty of structure-buffering dry extract such that this seems more forward than it really is on the gorgeously complex and persistent finish. This is a terrific Vosne villages and unreservedly recommended.
