Thibault Liger-Belair Bourgogne Les Deux Terres 2013
This new cuvée is a blend. The idea of “les Deux Terres” (the two lands) comes from the marriage between Beaujolais and Bourgogne, and Gamay and Pinot Noir (2/3 Gamay & 1/3 Pinot NOir). Quite lush on the palate, with ripe fruit of coffee/toffee flavors.
Cultivation and trading wines has been a family business since the early 18th century. The establishments C.Marey and Comte Liger-Belair, created in 1720 at Nuits Saint-Georges, later quoted on the Lyon Stock Exchange in 1923, counted amongst the most important wine merchant houses in Burgundy. Building on the quality of harvests and that wines, the family endeavoured to enlarge the domaine and to distribute the best wines of Burgundy, both in France and around the world.
