2019 Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair Clos Vougeot Grand Cru (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1550477 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Liger-Belair owns a 0.75ha parcel planted to old vines in the centre of the vineyard, on the border with Echézeaux, in the section of the Clos known as Baudes Basses. A large proportion of the grapes are fermented as whole clusters, producing remarkably pure, immediately attractive ripe black fruit, dressed with hints of spice and fresh violets. The texture is dense and firm, but very polished and elegant. A very sophisticated Clos de Vougeot. Drinking Window 2024 - 2039. (CC) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark From the southern side of the clos, the 2019 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru includes 40% whole bunch from the parcel planted in 1944. The bouquet is tightly wound at first, opening to reveal blackberry, briary, cedar and light loamy aromas. The palate is nicely structured with firm grip, touches of black pepper and blood orange infusing the mainly black fruit. The finish just needs to manifest a little more finesse, and that might happen during the remainder of barrel maturation, of course. (NM) Inner quote mark (12/2020)

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark An overtly floral nose with touches of herbal tea is composed by ultra-fresh aromas of dark berries and a hint of warm earth. There is very good size, weight and punch to the relatively large-scaled flavors that flash good power on the delicious yet decidedly austere finish that is also quite firmly structured. Promising. Inner quote mark (1/2021)

K&L Notes

94-96pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "The old vines from 1944 were vinified with their stems, whereas the younger vines (1992) which had also been slightly frosted were destalked. The overall blend included just under half whole bunches. Rich full purple, detailed nose alongside its natural blockbuster attitude. Heady but happy here. Rich succulent deep raspberry fruit, well balanced tannins, very complete and quite persistent. Tasted: November 2020."
