domaine des tilleuls (philippe livera) côte de nuits villages

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!

    Interesting Domaine indeed, and never heard of before. It may be interesting to visit our next trip in May.

    How about: Pierre Thibert • Côte de Nuits villages • La Montagne • 2010

    Here the year 2010 has brought wines with a deep red, almost black colour. The nose is still slightly closed, with liquorice and dark fruit but the powerful, broad flavour has a pleasant tannic structure and after having sucked in some air, shows a thick, juicy fruit, a pleasant acidity and some earthiness.
    This is a wine that offers great value for money and in a very good vintage like 2010 will outperform Villages of Premier Crus from lesser vintages.
