Critic Reviews
92 points, Decanter
“Plenty of plummy fruit, with a rewarding richness and density that lingers invitingly on the palate - definitely over-performing at the regional level. This delicious wine is produced from a blend of grapes from Nuits-St-Georges and Chambolle-Musigny. The grapes were fermented slowly over three weeks with 20% whole clusters before aging for 15 months in a cask (25% new).”

87-88 points, Jasper Morris
“The degrees have stayed sensible at 12.8%, as the vines, half from below Chambolle, and half from Arcenant, never had hydric stress. Jet purple, lively ripe bouquet, sun-dried raspberry, plenty of structure here, in both tannin and acidity. Concentrated all the way around.”

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.
