Thibault Liger Belair Nuits Saint Georges Premier Cru 'Les Saint Georges' 2019

6 units available online.
Product description
96 Points - Decanter

As close to grand cru as one will find in Nuits-St-Georges. The vines were planted over 75 years ago, yielding a powerful, majestic wine with just a little sauvage edge. There is a compelling savoury note on the nose, along with dense mulberry fruit. On the palate, there is great density and firm tannins, but there is also exuberance and charm, even at such a youthful age. This will continue to improve for decades to come. 

93+ Points - Vinous

Including just shy of 40% whole cluster, the 2019 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Saint-Georges 1er Cru has an outstanding bouquet of beautifully defined brambly red fruit, commingling with crushed stone and wilted rose petal scents. The tensile palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannins, a fine bead of acidity and a crisp, structured, classically styled finish. Bon vin.
