About this winery

Thibault Liger-Belair comes from a great winemaking family that has deep roots in Burgundy: he is a direct descendant of the Napoleonic General Louis Liger-Belair, who acquired the Chateau de Vosne in 1815 when he married Ludovie Marey, whose family had been Burgundy negociants since 1720. Youthful, passionate and always full of ideas, Thibault trained as an oenologist, but had his start in the wine industry as a wine buyer. He is also a former rugby player with a genuine 'down to earth'...

Notes about product

The vines are 65 years old on average and planted on a soil of limestone, clay and blue granite. This parcel has an area of 2.5 Ha in the commune of Romanèche-Thorins, a locality called "Les Rouchaux".

Winemaking notes

The grapes are harvested by hand and they are using 40% whole cluster fermentation. There is a 3 week fermentation period with very moderate intervention. They are aging the wine in French oak barrels for 12-15 months. The wines are unfiltered and unfined.

Tasting notes

This wine is beautiful example of a modern style Beaujolais. Dark berries, raspberries, peppery spice and minerality aromas. This wine is medium bodied with silky tannins and bright acidity.
