2012 Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les St. Georges" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1439615 93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This is aromatically cool to the point of being almost mute though aggressive swirling eventually liberates the reluctant, pure and restrained aromas of dried flowers, earth, red currant and discreet spice nuances. There is outstanding intensity and detail to the almost painfully intense medium-bodied and overtly powerful flavors that enjoy impressive mid-palate concentration before concluding in a driving, firm, austere slightly rustic finish that is very Nuits in character. I very much like the depth of the underlying material and there is already fine finishing complexity. This should be excellent if you have the patience. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (1/2015)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright red. Musky, soil-driven aromas and flavors of raspberry, dried flowers, leather and minerals. At once fine-grained and penetrating, conveying outstanding density without any impression of weight. This wine could hardly be more different than the musclebound Clos Vougeot. Spreads out and builds on the back end, with the full, ripe tannins totally buffered by the wine's sheer extract. (ST) 93+ Inner quote mark (3/2015)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2012 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru les Saint-Georges from Thibault Liger-Belair has a very refined and detailed bouquet with cold stone scents filtering through the pure red berry fruit. There is wonderful terroir expression here. The palate is well balanced with quite a lot of extraction compared to other growers; deep and rounded strawberry and raspberry notes, slightly lower in acidity with plenty of fruité on the opulent finish. Damn delicious and seductive. Tasted November 2016. (WK) Inner quote mark (2/2017)
