La Romanee Grand Cru Comte Liger Belair 2016

9.900,00

With around only 3600 bottles produced. “The 2016 La Romanée Grand Cru has an intense bouquet with extraordinarily pure black and blueberry fruit, beautifully integrated oak, wilted violets emerging with time. It has more flamboyance than the Romanée-Conti tasted the following day, a little more luster. The palate is very well balanced… …This will require serious bottle age, at least a decade, Outstanding.” (Dec 29, 2017) Drink 2028 -2060  96 – 98pts – Neal Martin – robertparker.com

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 2016 La Romanée Grand Cru has an intense bouquet with extraordinarily pure black and blueberry fruit, beautifully integrated oak, wilted violets emerging with time. It has more flamboyance than the Romanée-Conti tasted the following day, a little more luster. The palate is very well balanced, balancing on a high-wire, paradoxically intense yet one of the most backward and introspective La Romanées that I have encountered from barrel, dense and unforgiving at the moment. This will require serious bottle age, at least a decade, but I love the salinity that kicks in on the finish and the extremely long aftertaste. Outstanding.” – Neal Martin, robertparker.com (Dec 29, 2017)
