    ($1095) Good medium red. Reticent aromas of red berries and minerals, with an overlay of spicy oak. Large-scaled, creamy-sweet and rich; a real essence of pinot noir. Wonderfully suave and spherical wine with intriguing minerality and lovely length. Showing a good bit of smoky oak today, which Liger-Belair says is typical for this wine in the early going. My score may prove to be conservative.

    As it usually is, the nose is positively kaleidoscopic with a wonderful breadth of red and black fruit aromas, violets and Asian spice nuances that continues onto the rich, full and very stylish medium full flavors blessed with impressive amounts of supporting mid-palate sap that relegate the firm tannic spine to the background for the moment before exploding into a youthfully austere and mouth coating finish that seems to go on and on. This is not an especially big La Roman‚e but like several of its brethren, it's tightly focused, balanced and carries enormous flavor authority.

    Mid crimson. Very heady and sumptuous. Jewel bright but very complex and substantial already. Dense black fruit nose with richness but overall massive freshness. Described by J&B as 'demure' - I'm not sure it's that demure. Pretty striking and confident to me. Very intense and with a dry finish but masses of well tucked in fruit here. Very neat and refreshing.

    Tasted at the La Romanee vertical at Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair. The 2007 La Romanee Grand Cru is in keeping with the vintage, very open for business with plush strawberries, red cherries and rose petals. It is not the most complex aromatics that Louis-Michel has overseen but it is utterly charming. The palate is beautifully balanced with fine tannin, very pure red cherry and cranberry fruit, a dash of orange sorbet and plenty of mineral notes on the tensile finish. I would actually broach this now to revel in its youth and joie-de-vivre but it clearly has the substance to last two decades. I'll leave it to you. Tasted June 2015.

  • 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.
