Born from Pinot Noir grapes grown and grown in a vineyard planted in 1948 in the prestigious Grand Cru Clos Vougeot, the parcel of the Domain Thibault Ligier-Belair rises on the south side of the vineyard on the border with the renowned Echèzeaux. The soils are mixed: on the one hand calcareous clay, on the one hand made up of small gravels with clays and the remaining part of fine clays and silt. In the vineyard the dictates of Biodynamic Viticulture are followed while in the cellar the natural processes of vinification are followed through spontaneous fermentations and limited interventions; the wine ages in pieces for 18 months before being put on the market. The vinification and the diversity of the soils give a rich and dense wine, much closer to the roundness and softness of Vosne-Romanée than to the power of Vougeot.
Beautiful intense ruby red, with a hue that is becoming deeper and deeper with age. In the glass it is limpid and quite consistent. The nose is intense, with a range of aromas reminiscent of plum, red cherry, spicy pepper and aromatic herbs. The mineral component is good, the tannin is still slightly edgy, it is finding its balance but needs time. Medium body and good acidic shoulder. Still slightly austere, but its potential is high.
Wine with excellent aging potential.
Taste it at a temperature of 16 ° -18 ° C. It goes perfectly with meat dishes and important first courses.
