Critic Reviews
92-94 points, Vinous
“The 2017 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru includes around 30% whole cluster fruit and around two-thirds new oak. It has a surprisingly opulent bouquet of plush dark plum and blueberry aromas, slightly floral in style. The palate is lively and full of tension, a little earthy (although less so than previous vintages) and more linear than I would expect. This is a straitlaced yet sophisticated Clos Vougeot that should age with style. It will benefit from four to six years’ cellaring.”

About The Winery
The Liger-Belair family has passed down the tradition of winemaking from generation to generation for the past 250 years. In 2001, Thibault Liger-Belair took over the vines as the winemaker and created Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair. Prior to joining the family domaine, Thibault studied viticulture and oenology for six years, and worked for a communications firm in Paris where he was able to present and taste wines internationally. In his mid-twenties, Thibault also started an internet company with the idea of discovering and selling high quality wines. But the calling of the vines was still strong, so in 2001, at the age of 26, Thibault decided to jump to the other side of the fence, this time to make wine, his true calling and passion. The year 2002 was the first harvest of the Nuits-Saint-Georges, Nuits-Saint-Georges Charmottes, as well as Vosne-Romanée Aux Réas. In 2003, the domaine enriched its range with Richebourg Grand Cru, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru, Vosne-Romanée Premier Cru Petits Monts, and Bourgogne Rouge. In 2009, the domaine expanded into Beaujolais, and now a Beaujolais-Villages and several Moulin-à-Vent Cru wines are also produced.
