2019 Thibault Liger-Belair Bourgogne Rouge "Les Grandes Chaillots"

SKU #1550642 91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This Bourgogne is blended from 1ha of domaine-owned vines in Nuits with 2ha of purchased fruit from Chambolle. It shows a silky, spicy red fruit character, a supple and aromatic presence on the palate, with fresh acidity and good length. 20% of the grapes are fermented as whole clusters and the wine is aged in 25% new casks. Drinking Window 2024 - 2039. (CC) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Reduction presently flattens the underlying fruit but otherwise there is good freshness to the relatively refined and caressing flavors that offer good length on the lingering finish where only a mild touch of rusticity appears. This delicious effort should drink well early on but repay a year or two of cellaring. Inner quote mark (1/2021)

Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Bourgogne Grand Chaillots comprises one-third Nuits Saint-Georges and two-thirds Chambolle-Musigny, with 20% whole bunch and no remontage in the winery. It has a very airy bouquet that I feel just needs more presence and fruité. The palate is medium-bodied with soft tannins. A mellow Bourgogne Rouge that will be approachable in its youth.

K&L Notes

Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Bourgogne vineyards below Nuits and Chambolle. 20% whole bunch. Fresh pink purple, lovely perfumed pinot, really very classy, scented cherries, prettily ripe red fruits with good acidity. No punch down here, just turn the cap and give a light pump over. Very long finish for a Bourgogne. Tasted: November 2020."
