I’ve worked my way through a number of Livera’s 2010s, and frankly, they have all been outstanding – here’s another one for the pile.
2010 Philippe Livera (Domaine des Tilleuls), Côte de Nuits Villages
Medium, medium-plus colour. The nose has understated depth and a faint but fine red fruited top note. There’s no padding or any other extraneous make-up, just a frankly beguiling vivacity and a faintly, sweetly leaching acidity that delivers a wine with fine energy. Decently lingering flavour too. A wine that doesn’t crave your attention but makes its mark. Brilliant Côte de Nuits Villages.
Rebuy – Yes
I think I have a good idea what wine to compare this with tomorrow!
