DOMAINE THIBAULT LIGER-BELAIR

Thibault Liger-Belair, Vieilles Vignes 2010 Moulin-à-Vent 16.5 Drink 2013-2017
Lively crimson. Very alluring! Splits the difference between rich burgundy and Beaujolais. Not the most purist nose but... very sweet with good acid and chew on the end. 
£145 per case ib OW Loeb

 

Dom Thibault Liger-Belair, Les Grands Chaillots 2010 Bourgogne 16 Drink 2014-2017
Bright crimson. Very solid and burly. Bone-dry finish after quite a lot of impact. And quite marked tannins. Very much a Côte de Nuits style. Much more ambitious than most Bourgogne Rouge. 
£138 per case ib Flint

 

Dom Thibault Liger-Belair, Les Grands Chaillots 2010 Bourgogne 16.5 Drink 2013-2018
Rich and dense and much more ambitious (and alcoholic?) than the average Bourgogne. Sumptuous. GV if you like the style. 
£144 per case ib OW Loeb

 

Dom Thibault Liger-Belair, La Corvée de Villy 2010 Hautes-Côtes de Nuits 16 Drink 2013-2016
Pale ruby. Good vibrant stuff. Lively and transparent - much tarter than the Bourgogne Rouge. 
£162 per case ib OW Loeb

 

Dom Thibault Liger-Belair, La Charmotte 2010 Nuits-St-Georges 16.5 Drink 2015-2023
Dense, reduced a tad? But lots there. Smooth and racy. But seems quite agricultural with lower acid than most. Long and flattering. 
£325 per case ib OW Loeb

 

Dom Thibault Liger-Belair, Aux Réas 2010 Vosne-Romanée 17 Drink 2016-2025
Very sweet and rich. Dense and intense. Lots of effort in here! Just a little soft but you cannot fault it for not trying. 
£228 per case of 6 ib BBR

 

Dom Thibault Liger-Belair, Les Gruenchers Premier Cru 2010 Chambolle-Musigny 16.5 Drink 2015-2023
Quite vegy nose and then crunchy, wild-flower aromas. Lots going on here but it's a sort of jazzy version of Chambolle. Lots of grunt. 
£275 per case of 6 ib Flint

 

Dom Thibault Liger-Belair, Les St-Georges Premier Cru 2010 Nuits-St-Georges 16.5 Drink 2016-2024
11 hl/ha. Very sweet and rich. Energetic. 
£297 per case of 6 ib BBR

 

Dom Thibault Liger-Belair, La Toppe au Vert Premier Cru 2010 Aloxe-Corton 17 Drink 2015-2023
Mid ruby. Quite evolved and very flattering - far from tough! Lively fruit. Very transparent and fresh on the palate in fact. Really racy and interesting. 
£370 per case ib OW Loeb

 

Dom Thibault Liger-Belair, Grand Cru 2010 Corton-Les Renardes 17.5 Drink 2015-2028
Crimson. Very full of life! Bumptious. Not the most ridiculous price for a grand cru. Such race underneath. Yet it manages to be smooth too. Real depth and sincerity. Lots of pleasure efficiently delivered. 
£294 per case of 6 ib Lea & Sandeman

 

Dom Thibault Liger-Belair, Grand Cru 2010 Clos de Vougeot 17.5 Drink 2016-2030
Dense and rich and energy and a bit liqueur-like. Almost exaggerated! 
£390 per case of 6 ib BBR

 

Dom Thibault Liger-Belair, Grand Cru 2010 Charmes-Chambertin 18.5 Drink 2015-2030
Light crimson. Very heady, layered nose. Sweet start and lots of interest here. The sort of wine that will probably go through many different stages in its life. Fresh and vital. One of the most interesting 2010s I have tasted in London. And I don't think you will be forced to wait all that long for it either! 
£411 per case of 6 ib Lea & Sandeman

 

Dom Thibault Liger-Belair, Grand Cru 2010 Richebourg 19 Drink 2016-2032
How amazing to show a wine of this price at a big tasting! Rich and layered and really rather subtle. Much more subtle than the Charmes with a hint of lacquered Peking/Beijing duck about it. Very jolly. So nice to see a producer do something different yet still in the spirit of the vineyard. Vibrant finish. Respect. 
£1,101 per case of 6 ib Lea & Sandeman

Vosne Romanée "aux Réas" 2006 91 points

An elegant red, marked by new oak, along with pure black cherry and blackberry notes. It starts out smooth, turning slightly astringent at the end, but there's lot of sweet fruit so give it some time to integrate, best from 2010 through 2015

2005 RED  BURGUNDY
Nuits Saint Georges 1er cru « Les Saint-Georges », 2005

Medium-full colour. Refined, fragrant, classy nose. Not the volume of some of these middle Nuits-Saint-Georges, but has medium to medium-full body and lovely succulent fruit and very good grip. Fine. Now 2014. 17.5

Richebourg, 2005
Full colour. Closed in nose. But there is plenty of fruit and substance here. Slightly adolescent at present – like most of the rest it improved significantly in thr glass – but rich and concentrated and full and profound. Very good grip. Needs time. Very fine. From 2017. 18.5
