Reviews for 2009 Liger-Belair, Domaine Thibault Corton, Les Rognets

BH 92
Burghound - Burghound, January 2011
A discreet touch of wood sets off fresh and lightly spiced red currant blue berry and pungent earth aromas that give way gracefully to rich full-bodied and impressively voluminous flavors that possess a supple mid-palate... A discreet touch of wood sets off fresh and lightly spiced red currant blue berry and pungent earth aromas that give way gracefully to rich full-bodied and impressively voluminous flavors that possess a supple mid-palate contrasted with a notably firm robust and long finish. This should be quite good if given time.

Good full red. High-toned red fruits on the nose. Silky suave and spicy; rich broad and very ripe. The smoky oak component is less apparent in the mouth but this is very ripe. Liger-Belair notes that his vines are planted... Good full red. High-toned red fruits on the nose. Silky suave and spicy; rich broad and very ripe. The smoky oak component is less apparent in the mouth but this is very ripe. Liger-Belair notes that his vines are planted on soil rich in orange-brown clay at the top of the vineyard and yield a generous style of wine while the Meo-Camuzet holding is on calcaire lower down on the hillside and produces a more taut minerally style. Today I prefer the 2008 version of the Liger-Belair example.
