    Low-key nose. Pretty dry, pretty classy. Lots of acid and the tannin at the moment overpowers the fruit. Tingles, almost, as though there's some carbon dioxide in here. Definitely Grand Cru status but a bit surly at present.

    Tasted at the Comte Liger-Belair vertical at the Chateau de Vosne. The 2002 Vosne-Romanee Clos du Chateau has a light, fragrant dried rose petal, strawberry and tangerine-scented bouquet that gently opens in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with finer tannin than the first two vintages and a keener thread of acidity. This still has respectable tension and there is an attractive piquancy on the finish that lingers in the mouth. This has aged very well and is worth seeking out. Tasted June 2015.

    Vicomte Liger-Belair bottling. An adroit trace of wood frames stunningly elegant, dazzlingly complex black fruit aromas, leading to sappy, mouth coating, powerful and very deep if presently tight and somber flavors of astonishing richness and length. But it's the seamless harmony, superb purity of expression and sheer class that distinguishes this. In a word, breathtaking. Tasted twice with consistent notes.

  • One of the newest estates in Burgundy, Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair, is owned by Louis-Michel Liger-Belair whom has already carved a name for himself in the history of fine Burgundian wine.

    Domaine Liger-Belair has 200 years of winemaking in his family traditions. Louis Liger-Belair, ancestor of Louis-Michel Liger-Belair purchased the Chateau de Vosne in 1815. After handing the estate down to his adopted son, Louis-Charles, the Liger-Belair family began teaching fine winemaking traditions through the generations. Louis-Charles married a fellow winemaker, Ludovie Marey, who would go on to have a son, Louis-Michel. When, at just eight years old, his son expressed an interest in wine, Louis-Michel's father told him that he could only take over the estate if he became an agricultural engineer. Louis-Michel worked for years to earn his degree, and in 2000, he took back his family's original estates in Vosne Romanee. Today, he owns the smallest and most sought-after Grand Cru monopole in Burgundy, La Romanee.

    The ancient, 50-year-old vines of the estate are grown on just 85 acres of land, and are exclusively owned and regulated under the Liger-Belair family name - only producing about 4,000 bottles annually, making it one of the rarest monopoles in the world. Over the past 15 years, Liger-Belair has focused on the terroir flavors that come from the mineral-rich soil, especially in light of its status as a monopole. Hand-selected grapes, low yields, and uninterrupted fermentation make the La Romanee distinctive, and have earned the estate multiple high ratings among wine critics.
