The seductive and serious 2012 Thibault Liger-Belair, Vieilles Vignes, Moulin-à-Vent


The 2012 Thibault Liger-Belair, Vieilles Vignes, Moulin-à-Vent is a seriously good wine.  A quick sniff and taste reveal such a seductive and concentrated wine, that you might think you accidentally opened one of their Burgundy bottles.  Instead this is pure old-vine Gamay sourced from the Moulin-à-Vent cru in Beaujolais. These wines are known to be meaty and capable of aging.  This is bottle is certainly a great example.  I recommend you drink it by the fire after your Thanksgiving meal.  This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

2012 Thibault Liger-Belair, Vieilles Vignes, Moulin-à-Vent – $30
Imported by Vineyard Brands.  This wine is 100% Gamay sourced from seven parcels spanning 65 to 85 years of age.  Alcohol 13%.  The dark aromas suggest the concentration found in the flavors of raspberry.  This textured wine sports balanced acidity and tannins on the gums, which together make this poised for continued development. With air, a creamy nature comes out as well as orange citrus and pencil lead.  Serious stuff!  ***(*) Now -2020.

    Another sterling recommendation! I’ll have to pick up a few bottles this weekend.
