Louis-Michel Liger-Belair has been a busy boy.
Not only has he been re-designing the family Audi A3*, but he has been remodelling his affairs in Vosne-Romanée too.
The name of the business C.Marey was first recorded in Nuits St.Georges in 1720. In 1852, Guillaume-Félix Marey, together with the Comte Liger-Belair joined their business together to form the company, C.Marey et Comte Liger-Belair. On the death of Guillaume-Félix in 1869, the company passed solely into the hands of the Liger-Belairs. In the first half of the 1900s this company name was sold, eventually ending up in the hands of Maison Boisset of Nuits St.Georges.
Louis-Michel has come to an agreement with Boisset to recover this old name connected to his family in Vosne-Romanée, and will use this as the vehicle for selling multiple lots of wines he has been buying at the Hospices de Beaune.
*Nobody was seriously injured, but Louis-Michel’s wife, Constance, has a painful broken bone.
