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 Charmotte has an open nose with brambly red berry fruit and subtle earthy tones. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins. The 40% whole cluster lends freshness and a good precision towards the finish.
