Thibault Liger-Belair - Bourgogne 'Les Grands Chaillots' 2020
OUT OF STOCK
All the vines of the Domaine have been in the family since the 18th century. The Companies C.Marey and Comte Liger-Belair were created in 1720 in Nuits-Saint-Georges and listed in the Lyon Stock Exchange in 1923. They were among the most important wine growing and trading houses in Burgundy. Confident in the quality of its harvests and in the one of its wines, the family has worked hard to enhance the Domaine in acquiring the best Cuvées and in taking care of their distribution both in France and abroad.
The origins of the grapes used to produce this cuvée give the wine an ageing potential superior to what one would expect from the Burgundy appellation. It is a surprising wine, both in terms of its length and its structure.
This wine is a blend of grapes from the villages of Nuits-Saint-Georges and Chambolle-Musigny. One plot in Nuits-Saint-Georges covers one hectare with vines planted between 1978 and 1986 while the two-hectare plots in Chambolle-Musigny were planted between 1954 and 1962.
This wine is very enjoyable in its youth and will gain in complexity after a few years of ageing.
