    Tasted blind, Louis-Michel Liger-Belair's 2015 La Romanée Grand Cru is simply extraordinary, dominating a flight of great grands crus. The wine wafts from the glass with an extraordinarily complex bouquet in which notes of cherries, cassis and orange rind mingle with fragrant aromas of rose petal and Asian spices, complemented by deeper, more savory bass notes of grilled squab, espresso roast and smoked duck. On the palate, it's full-bodied, multidimensional and complete, with amazing depth and dimension, juicy acids balancing a deep and concentrated core of fruit, and concluding with a long, reverberative finish. This is a powerful, even dramatic La Romanée that ranks as one of the pinnacles of this magical vintage.

    The 2015 La Romanée Grand Cru is a much more introverted wine than the Domaine A.F. Gros Richebourg Grand Cru, less detailed and complex, yet still captivating with its brambly black fruit, graphite and minerals, the latter becoming increasingly expressive with continued aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannin. This is beautifully balanced and supple in the mouth, displaying beguiling harmony and a persistent, utterly seductive finish. It could only be La Romanée. Sublime. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.

  • 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.
