Thibault Liger-Belair Grand Cru Clos Vougeot

Thibault Liger-Belair owns a 0.75ha parcel planted to old vines in the centre of the vineyard, on the border with Echézeaux, in the section of the Clos known as Baudes Basses. A large proportion of the grapes are fermented as whole clusters, producing remarkably pure, immediately attractive ripe black fruit, dressed with hints of spice and fresh violets. The texture is dense and firm, but very polished and elegant. A very sophisticated Clos de Vougeot.

The old vines from 1944 were vinified with their stems, whereas the younger vines (1992) which had also been slightly frosted were destalked. The overall blend included just under half whole bunches. Rich full purple, detailed nose alongside its natural blockbuster attitude. Heady but happy here. Rich succulent deep raspberry fruit, well balanced tannins, very complete and quite persistent.
