2008 Comte Liger-Belair, La RomanéeMay. 2011
I started writing transparent, but I think I really mean ethereal, flowers and fruit – exquisitely detailed. Density though no apparent weight, this has quite some understatement; just a subtly haunting length…
2004 Comte Liger-Belair, La RomanéeJul. 2006
Spicier, initially less fruit-driven nose, yet each sniff brings new aromas as the nose widens out, but at the centre is a tight core of fruit that never-quite opens out. Velvetty tannin that’s on a higher level than the other wines, yet very well balanced. Super acidity and really impressive length – it’s a more linear length than the ‘panoramic’ 05 in barrel – but it’s a rather haunting diminuendo.
2003 Comte Liger-Belair, La RomanéeNov. 2004
Blood red fruit. Luxurious mouthfeel with many layers to the fruit – superbly balanced – so much so, that it was hard to pick out specific attributes but the finish lingers with a style that leaves you remembering the wine for some time after.
