Red Burgundy Comte Liger-Belair 2016 Echezeaux

1 Bottle 75cl £1,450
Red Burgundy Comte Liger-Belair 2015 Vosne Romanee

6 Bottle 75cl £465
  • Tasting note: There is enough reduction present to push the underlying fruit to the background today. Otherwise there is both good freshness and a lovely inner mouth perfume to the firm and punchy medium weight flavors that possess excellent depth and persistence. This should be a very good Vosne villages.

Red Burgundy Comte Liger-Belair 2014 Nuits 1er Cru Clos des Grandes Vignes

1 Case 3 150cl £3,600£2,800
  • Tasting note: A restrained nose displays pretty and cool red currant, earth and soft spice nuances. There is a lovely sense of underlying tension to the supple, round and fleshy medium-bodied flavors that possess a relatively refined mouth feel thanks to the fine-grained tannins. I like the subtle complexity on the delicious, balanced and attractively persistent if tautly muscular finish. In contrast to the Petits Monts, this relatively forward effort should drink well early on.

Red Burgundy Comte Liger-Belair 2017 Echezeaux

2 Bottle 75cl £1,450
  • 92-95 BH - Tasting note: Firm reduction. The finer and slightly denser flavors possess solid dry extract as well as a velvety and highly sappy seductive mouthfeel where the extract does a good job of buffering the long, complex and mocha-infused finish. Lovel

    Producer note: Louis-Michel Liger-Belair told me that 2011 was an "exceptionally precocious vintage that not only started early but ended early. I chose to begin picking on the 3rd of September and brought in super clean fruit though there was some sorting work required for under ripe berries, which cost us around 5%. Quantities were down again and I would estimate that they were off between 15 and 20% relative to a normal vintage. One of the really impressive aspects of this vintage is just how ripe the underlying phenolics are even though the potential alcohols were only slightly above average at between 12 and 13%. It was warm during the harvest and the fruit was obviously warm as well when it arrived at the cuverie. As such the fermentations started relatively rapidly. I elected to push the length of the cuvaisons significantly, which is to say that they normally last about 20 days but in 2011 the average was 25. The malos were varied with some finishing early and some late but the post-malo pHs were pretty much textbook at between 3.5 and 3.6. Overall, 2011 is not a great vintage but I like the wines a lot as they have good aging potential plus they will offer a lot of pleasure young." In other news Liger-Belair told me that he acquired the Nuits 1er monopole of La Grande Vigne (it's actually in Prémeaux) which measures 2.21 ha. He will also have some white next year as a .5 ha portion of La Grande Vigne is planted to chardonnay. As the scores and comments suggest, the now in-bottle '10s have also turned out extremely well and a number of them are really quite stunning, in particular the Reignots.

    Tasting note: This is discreet and reserved with a gorgeously complex nose that offers up notes of violets, cassis, black berry, clove, sandalwood and anise hints. There is a palpable sense of energy to the brilliantly well-delineated, cool and restrained flavors that possess outstanding mid-palate concentration with focused power and a strong mineral component that culminate in a driving and explosive finish. What is interesting here though is that the power is delivered with no apparent weight and the supporting tannins are wonderfully sophisticated. While there is some of the trademark youthful austerity it seems less pronounced in 2010 than in some other recent vintages. A magnificent and perfectly balanced effort of pure silk that should age accordingly and this is undoubtedly one of the best wines in a great vintage.

Tasting Notes
Rhone Clos du Mont Olivet 2010 CNDP Mont Olivet Cuvee Papet

5 Case 12 75cl £820

    Possibly the finest example of the Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Papet since Mont Olivet’s unreal 1990, the 2010 is a blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah, all aged in foudre. The grapes come from the estate’s oldest vines (50- to 105-years-old), which were planted in the famous sites of Mont Olivet and Bois Dauphin. A extraordinarily deep plum/purple color is followed by notes of balsam wood, raspberries, black currants, lavender, garrigue, kirsch, licorice and underbrush. This quintessential Chateauneuf du Pape smells like an open-air Provencal market. It is a full-bodied, full-throttle, multilayered wine with exceptional concentration, power and precision. While it can be approached now, it will not hit its prime for another 3-4 years, and should last for two decades given how well the 1990 continues to perform. ||One of the first properties to estate bottle their wines (over 80 years ago), Clos du Mont Olivet is owned by a branch of the Sabon family, a name that is well-known throughout the village of Chateauneuf du Pape.||Various American importers including Michael Skurnik, Syosset, NY; tel.
