Winemaker Notes

This is one of the best wines of the domain with an area of more than a quarter of 7,5 hectares which make up the appellation. This ancient vine is planted on calcareous brown soil, which is deep and very stony. Producing wines that are rich and structured. Perfect to lay in your cellar.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Resin, mint, sage, and licorice overtones to the roasted game and deep, palate-staining fresh blackberry fruit of Liger-Belair's 2007 Nuits-St.-Georges Les St.-Georges seem to point in part toward its one-third proportion of stems and whole clusters. Here is a 2007 that hasn't just retained fresh fruit vivacity but displays textural richness and authoritative grip as well. A saline streak extends the finish and calls forth saliva and yearning for the next sip. I would bet on it for at least ten years of high-performance.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Round and immediately appealing for its wild berry, black currant, licorice and spice notes. There's nice lift from the bright acidity and a chewiness to the texture, with fine concentration. Best from 2012 through 2022.

Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair, France
Image of winery
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.

After six years of study of vine growing and oenology, Thibault starts his career in a company specialized in the communication around the wine business, located in Paris. He works with and tastes the greatest wines of the world. After two years, he launches ‘Wine and Co’ an internet wine merchant. Since 2001 Thibault Liger Belair acts as chairman of Domaine Thibault Liger-Belair and is fully involved in the production of wines.

Nuits-St-Georges

View all products

Inhabiting the bottom end of the northern half of the Côte d’Or, Nuits-St-Georges is a busy, market-driven town and home to many of Burgundy’s negociants. It is also the largest town in the Côte d’Or after Beaune and contributes "nuits" to the name of Côte de Nuits (i.e., the northern half of the Côte d’Or).

The appellation itself is divided into two parts, where in the north it directly borders Vosne-Romanée, the southerly end is the commune of Prémeaux. There are no Grands Crus in this village, though it does have a large number of Premiers Crus.

The best Nuits-St-Georges Pinot noir are layered with cherry, plum, underbrush and sandalwood. The fruit is sweet, the wine energetic, and the finish long and lush.

Pinot Noir

One of the most finicky yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is a labor of love for many. However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. In fact, it is the only red variety permitted in Burgundy. Highly reflective of its terroir, Pinot Noir prefers calcareous soils and a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality and demands a lot of attention in the vineyard and winery. It retains even more glory as an important component of Champagne as well as on its own in France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions. This sensational grape enjoys immense international success, most notably growing in Oregon, California and New Zealand with smaller amounts in Chile, Germany (as Spätburgunder) and Italy (as Pinot Nero).

In the Glass

Pinot Noir is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry and cherry with some heftier styles delving into the red or purple plum and in the other direction, red or orange citrus. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and a lively acidity. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount) it can develop hauntingly alluring characteristics of fresh earth, savory spice, dried fruit and truffles.

Perfect Pairings

Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon and tuna but its mild mannered tannins give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry: chicken, quail and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, Pinot noir has proven it isn’t afraid of beef. California examples work splendidly well with barbecue and Pinot Noir is also vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

Sommelier Secret

For administrative purposes, the region of Beaujolais is often included in Burgundy. But it is extremely different in terms of topography, soil and climate, and the important red grape here is ultimately Gamay, not Pinot noir. Truth be told, there is a tiny amount of Gamay sprinkled around the outlying parts of Burgundy (mainly in Maconnais) but it isn’t allowed with any great significance and certainly not in any Village or Cru level wines. So "red Burgundy" still necessarily refers to Pinot noir.
