This single-vineyard Gamay comes from 80 year-old bush vines, and is farmed biodynamically. Thibault Liger-Belair is one of the top producers of the Cote-de-Nuits, and he began producing wine in Moulin-a-Vent in 2008. This wine is loaded with smoky notes and spices, with a core of delicious red fruit. This is exceptional.

Peppery more in texture than in flavour. Fine granular texture. All about texture at the moment. Deliciously dry and currently rather closed.
