    The 2014 La Romanee Grand Cru has a crisp and precise nose with black cherries, bergamot and blackberry with fine delineation, then upon further investigation notes of orange sorbet that I observed out of barrel. The palate is medium-bodied with fine delineation, crisp acidity, a touch of salinity towards the finish. It has firmed up a little in bottle but there is outstanding intensity and superb length, retaining that |tantalizingly poised finish| (to quote myself). This is a brilliant La Romanee that might have the temerity to challenge the succeeding vintage. Tasted November 2016.

  • 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.
