RATINGS

96Burghound.com

...black berries, oriental spices, tea, leather and a trace of underbrush coupled with extremely dense, extract of pinot noir flavors and fine, dusty tannins that create a massively structured wine that somehow remains in perfect balance.

94+ Stephen Tanzer

Subtle, aromatically compelling nose of bitter cherry, raspberry, minerals and licorice...offers compelling inner-mouth perfume and terrific persistence. A very classy wine with pronounced soil character.

92The Wine Advocate

Has a delectable talcum powder, super-ripe cherry, and perfume-scented nose. It has admirable amplitude and breadth in its medium to full-bodied, softly textured personality. Cherry syrup-covered chocolate chip cookie dough-like flavors...

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Vosne-Romanee, La Romanee

La Romanee is the smallest Grand Cru vineyard in Burgundy at just 2.5 acres. It is a monopoly wholly owned by the Liger-Belair family, now doing business as Domaine du Vicomte Liger-Belair, Chateau de Vosne-Romanee. Until 2005 Bouchard Pere et Fils was responsible for the elevage and marketing of the pinot noir from this vineyard, but that relationship ended Louis-Michael Liger-Belair completed his education and moved back to the family estate. La Romanee is directly up the slope from Romanee-Conti, the most celebrated vineyard in France, and La Romanee’s elevation ranges from 275 to 300 meters.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
