2010 Clos Vougeot

Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair

flagBurgundy / France

The 2010 Clos de Vougeot shows terrific energy and persistence. There is an attractive juiciness to the mid-palate that balances the wine’s structural elements. Floral notes add lift on the finish. The oak is a bit prominent, but I doubt that will be much of an issue by the time this is ready to drink, which isn’t going to be anytime soon. Anticipated maturity: 2025-2040. ||I was deeply impressed with the wines I tasted with Thibault Liger-Belair. Thibault’s core holdings are the remaining vestiges of his family’s portion of the original Liger-Belair estate that was sold in the early 1930s. In recent years, Liger-Belair has added a few negociant wines to augment his range. Thibault Liger-Belair is the largest owner of the Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Les St. Georges and the leading proponent of the movement to have the vineyard classified as a Grand Cru. Liger-Belair’s decision to taste his Les St. Georges in between the Clos de Vougeot and Richebourg makes an eloquent case. In fact, words are pretty much superfluous at that point. I will report on Liger-Belair’s 2009s in the April issue. Wine Advocate.February, 2012
