Thibault Liger-Belair Aloxe Corton 'Le Toppe au Vert' Premier Cru 2017
This vintage has a bouquet of black berries and earth with a tight scent, just a touch of leafiness. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, a touch of acidity and blackcurrant towards a well-defined finish. Enjoy it for the next 6 to 8 years.
"I like to describe the wines of this terroir as being light without being skinny, the limestone soils offer nice elegance and tension. This wine is characterized by beautiful purity and great finesse and offers a beautiful length. This is a Premier Cru Aloxe Corton which is a little different from the standards of appellation due to the finesse of the tannins, which directs it more towards a characteristic wine product of the Côte de Nuits." - Thibault Liger-Belair
