2017 Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair Richebourg Grand Cru

SKU #1492697 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Thibault Liger-Belair used the highest ever amount of whole bunches in this wine in 2017 - 30%. It's an impressive old-vine cuvée made from a parcel planted in 1931. Less toasty than the 2016 was at the same stage, this has lots of plush, textured fruit, some peppery spice and nuanced tannins. A lick of chalky minerality freshens the finish. (TA) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dense and almost tarry, with licorice, black currant and blackberry flavors backed by dense tannins. A powerful style, concentrated and saturated with flavor, and rigid on the finish now. Impressive for the vintage. Needs time. (BS) Inner quote mark (8/2010)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark An exuberantly spicy nose of black cherry, violet, lilac and Asian-style tea is trimmed in a touch of wood toast. There is once again good detail and minerality to the quite muscular and powerful flavors that are shaped by fine but very firm tannins that make their presence felt on the youthfully austere, compact and impressively long finish. Patience strongly advised. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

91-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Richebourg Grand Cru includes 30% whole clusters, matured in 75% new oak (eight barrels in total this year). It has a very subtle bouquet that gradually unfolds in the glass: dark cherries, blackberry, wild hedgerow and crushed stone. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity and fine symmetry, although at the moment I seeking more substance on the finish. This is a fine Grand Cru, but not the best the domaine has made in recent years. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

K&L Notes
