There is a marked floral character to the very fresh and wonderfully airy nose of cool red berry fruit that is liberally laced with Gevrey style earth and humus.
There is really lovely detail to the energetic middle weight flavors that possess fine precision on the delicious finish that really fans out in the mouth. A quality villages.
|Winery||Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair|
Situated in the east part of Gevrey Chambertin, this vine is planted on deep clay soil.
It gives rich wines, more supple than Gevrey wines located at the west side, it’s necessary to have some small yield to give all its potential.
Domaine 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.
