Description

LA ROMANÉE, GRAND CRU, MONOPOLE
Surface: 0.8452 hectare (2.088 acres) in Pinot Noir
Age of vines: in 2017, 20% is 102 years old, 50% is 62 years old and 30% is between 22 and 42 years old
Average production: 12 barrels – 3,600 bottles
Soil and subsoil: The reddish-brown surface rests on a bed of Prémeaux limestone on the west side of the parcel. The beige-pink limestones are compact, forming a thin crust, with spots of “Chailles” (nodules of silica, almost like flint) flush with the cross erected in the southwest corner of this Grand Cru, where Les Reignots begins. The eastern part of this particular parcel probably rests on deeper clayey limestone that are formed in plates.
Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair is a very recent wine estate since created at the beginning of the year 2000 by Count Louis-Michel Liger-Belair, agricultural engineer and oenologist, with the aim of taking over the running of those few parcels of vineyards remaining in the hands of the family. But it is in fact a very old estate as it has over 200 years of family tradition at the service of the vines and wines of Burgundy in general and Vosne-Romanée in particular. The Domaine produces 15 cuvees spread over the villages of Vosne-Romanée, Flagey-Echezeaux, Nuits-Saint-Georges and Vougeot.

“The 2009 La Romanee is stunningly beautiful. It boasts the most sensual, sleek tannins imaginable. Sweet cherries in liqueur, roses, spices and licorice are woven together in a fabric of indescribable elegance. Words are superfluous in describing this eternal, timeless beauty. Frankly, it was hard to spit the 2009, Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039. Louis-Michel Liger-Belair’s 2009s have turned out just as great as I thought they would. These are some of the most personal, intimate wines being made in Burgundy. There really is nothing else that even closely resembles the house style.” – Antonio Galloni, robertparker.com (26th Apr 2012)
