DOMAINE THIBAULT LIGER-BELAIR
BURGUNDY, FRANCE 2020
As you know, 2020 was beyond a banner year for Burgundy, on a par with the epic vintages of this century: 2015, 2012, and 2009.
"Exceptional," declared Decanter, which, if anything, is perhaps understating its quality.
We count ourselves lucky to have partnered with one of the shooting stars of Burgundy — Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair, which Wine Anorak calls a "new classic Burgundy domaine" — to bring you five of the finest from that class: their Gevrey-Chambertin 'En Créot'; their Bourgogne Rouge 'Les Grandes Chaillots'; their Bourgogne Chardonnay 'Les Charmes'; their Bourgogne Rouge 'Les Deux Terres'; and their Moulin-a-Vent Champ Coeur.
Even better: we're offering each of them at a best price of 15% off!
Of the five, only two have so far been reviewed, with Decanter awarding 95 points to the Gevrey-Chambertin 'En Créot,' sourced from vines planted in 1956 ("Very Gevrey," it wrote: "bright," "fresh," "perfumed") and 92 points to the Bourgogne Rouge 'Les Grandes Chaillots' ("a delicious wine" of "rewarding richness and density that lingers invitingly on the palate")
Our recent tastings showed all of them to be wines of great character, with a foundational depth that simply can't be faked.
The excellence of this vintage is only part of the larger Liger-Belair story this century, the unfolding and compelling saga of an estate's methodical and steady rise in a hidebound region where change comes slowly. When Liger-Belair assumed control of the domaine, in 2001, he immediately set about restoring its old vines and instilling all-organic principles. The results — thanks to his undimmable drive and determination, and his exacting quest for terroir purity — have been nothing short of dramatic.
And nothing short of thrilling, too — especially for those of us who revere old-school soul in our wines.
Folks, if you've yet to explore the wines of this emerging star, now's the time to start, with these five value-laden gems from the soon-to-be-legendary 2020 vintage! But hurry; our allocation is limited!
