Critic Reviews
90-92 points, Vinous
“The 2017 Vosne-Romanée Aux Réas contains no whole clusters and was one of the largest yields due to the south-facing orientation. The bouquet is very detailed, offering raspberry, wild strawberry and rose petal aromas; touches of red plum develop in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins. There is good body and density for a village cru, a little piquancy toward the finish and sweet strawberry on the sustained aftertaste.”

“Here too there is just enough reduction to mask the fruit but not the underlying spice nuances. The caressing, velvety and seductively textured medium weight flavors possess fine volume plus solid depth and persistence on the balanced finish. This very good effort is very Vosne in style.”
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.
