93-95The Wine Advocate

This magnificent wine offers a medium-to-dark ruby color and an extraordinary nose of perfume, violets, and a myriad of red fruits. I was blown away by this wine's combination of precision, femininity, focus, and jammy, candied cherries.

Fresh and still entirely primary, elegantly perfumed violet and black fruit aromas introduce round, sweet, brilliantly delineated middle weight flavors of considerable breed and class and delivers a racy, long, stunningly pure finish.

90Wine Spectator

Monolithic and rock-solid at this stage, packed with dense black fruit flavors and earth notes wrapped in a thick coating of tannins that need time to integrate. The sweet fruit wins out in the end...


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.


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.
