2017 Thibault Liger-Belair (750ml)

Pinot Noir from Richebourg, Burgundy, France

2017 Thibault Liger-Belair

The 2017 Richebourg Grand Cru includes 30% whole clusters, matured in 75% new oak (eight barrels in total this year). It has a very subtle bouquet that gradually unfolds in the glass: dark cherries, blackberry, wild hedgerow and crushed stone. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity and fine symmetry, although at the moment I seeking more substance on the finish. This is a fine Grand Cru, but not the best the domaine has made in recent years.

91-93 points, Neal Martin, Vinous (Jan 2019)
