Thibault Liger-Belair

The deepest color so far, with a very classy nose and palate. Chocolate and licorice with velvety soft tannins. Smoky, and quite dense in structure, with a fairly rich mid-palate. The most concentration of all the wines so far. A chocolate-covered raisin finish.

Wine Advocate

An especially darkly-fruited, sappy personality accrues to Thibault Liger-Belair’s 2008 Vosne-Romanee Aux Reas, which incorporates fruit from a morsel of Petits Monts too tiny to merit separate vinification. This highlights dark berries, smoked meat, and brown spices. Wearing its extract on its sleeve and with pronounced, slightly bitter concentration of salt, iodine, peat, and crushed stone, it finishes with almost aggressive cut and energy. This formidable “don’t tread-on-me” Pinot needs several years in the cellar and will probably remain fascinating to follow for a dozen or more.

Score: 90. —David Schildknecht, June 2010.
