This wine is the perfect expression of the characters of this appellation: it has the charm of the wines of Vosne Romanee and the structure of the wines of Nuits-Saint-Georges. This very lively, full-bodied wine oozes with black cherry fruit and notes of plum yet nonetheless remains superbly fresh, with a clean, mineral finish.
This vineyard is located at the edge of the premier cru vineyards Aux Argilats and Les Bousselots, in the northern part of this appellation.
Thibault Liger-Belair was set up in 2002 by young winemaker Thibault Liger-Belair, who after studying vinification at university, worked as director of an internet based wine distribution company before setting up this domaine with vineyards inherited from his parents.
At the heart of the domaine is a very prominent vineyard in Nuits Saint-Georges “Les Saint Georges” the most famous vineyard of the appellation. Thibault’s large plot of this vineyard has vines that are over 60 years old. Thibault has implemented organic cultivation in all the vineyards he works and in recent years, he has started introducing biodynamic cultivation.
Thibault’s winemaking style is very thorough, from fermentation timing, to low yields, restricted use of sulfur dioxide, limited use of new barrels and other methods that allow the flavours of the fabulous terroir he works come through.
