2019 Thibault Liger-Belair Vosne-Romanée "Aux Réas" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1550472 93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This half-hectare of vines on the border with Nuits was planted in 1954, in thin soils over the limestone bedrock. The fruit was completely destemmed and gently pumped over during fermentation, before ageing in cask, half new. This deeply-coloured wine is a bit closed on the nose initially, but opens with time to show a gorgeous black fruit character, a silky texture and firm tannic grip on the palate. Drinking Window 2024 - 2039. (CC) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

91-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Vosne-Romanée Aux Réas was completely destemmed. It has a pure, focused bouquet of dark cherries and black currant aromas, plus just a touch of pressed iris flower. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy, succulent tannins, good depth and quite a precocious finish for Village Cru. Excellent. (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2020)

89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark An elegant, pure and exuberantly spicy nose blends notes of essence of red and dark berries with wisps of earth, lavender and a background hint of oak. The equally pure middle weight flavors possess excellent mid-palate concentration along with good minerality on the suave and refined finish that delivers very fine depth and persistent for a villages level wine. One to check out. *Burghound Outstanding Top Value!* Inner quote mark (1/2021)

K&L Notes

91-93pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "No whole bunches as Thibault found out in 2009 that it doesn’t work here. Brisk fresh deep purple. Very beautiful nose, classically Vosne with purity and precision. Starts very prettily and gains in substance, excellent acid balance, a very stylish not too powerful Vosne. Tasted: November 2020."
