Thibault Liger-Belair's Moulin-à-Vent Vieilles Vignes comes from 60- to 80-year-old vines.

The palate is medium-bodied with supple black fruit on the entry, but the back end exerts quite a grip.

As the wine opens up, the whole-bunch component becomes more evident in a lightly stemmy/herbal quality but not at all in excess.
