Domaine Thibault Liger Belair Moulin a Vent 'La Roche' 2018

Product description

The Liger-Belair surname carries some serious weight in Burgundy: The comte (count) Louis Liger-Belair was a Napoleonic General who acquired the Chateau de Vosne in 1815, and the family went on to amass an incredible collection of Burgundy’s best vineyards, including “La Romanee” and “La Tache.” More than a century later, in 1933, complicated inheritance laws forced the family to sell their vineyards at auction, although some were re-acquired by future generations. That was the point at which Thibault Liger-Belair’s forebears went their own way, focusing on vineyards primarily in Nuits-Saint-Georges.

La Roche vineyard is located at the top of the Moulin-a-Vent hill, the elevation of this site gives the wine freshness and elegance. La Roche is vinified with 40% whole cluster, minimal extraction and aged in old oak for 15 months. The tannin profile will become more supple with age.
