Louis-Michel Liger-Belair, December 2011

Liger-Belair is one of the more compelling stories in Burgundy. The Liger-Belair family has owned some of the most prestigious vineyards in the region for many generations. For most of that time, the fruit and wine from those sites was sold to other wineries. It is only within that last ten years or so that these long-term contracts began to expire and full control of the vineyards reverted to the Liger-Belair family. Under the leadership of Louis-Michel Liger-Belair, the estate continues its conversion to biodynamic farming, which is just now beginning to show up in the wines in a meaningful way. These are some of the most refined, subtle and gracious wines being made anywhere in the world. © 2013 All Grapes Media, LLC
