The wines of Comtes Liger-Belair are the most fabulous surprise that I have had in recent years in Burgundy context. The quality is high in all levels, since the "village" Clos du Chateau. The reignots is great, and the 2010 is even better. The nose is typical vosne, spicy, a touch of gingerbread, red fruit and earth, all in perfect harmony. The palate is complex, even in the early stage of maturity. The acidity and the fine tannins are so refined that allow you to try one now. But the future will be glorious with a giant potential (95-97)
Dinner at Ma Cuisine (Beaune): Decanted approx an hour before serving. Served alongside 2012 Petits Monts. Dark, brooding start showing huge mostly black fruit. Powerful, dense black cherry and berry with Asian five spice throughout. Backward today, this wine kept teasing us with displays of greatness to come.
France 2013 - Côte d'Or; 4/20/2013-4/23/2013 (Beaune): Tasted at the Domaine. From half bottle. Great nose, pure raspberry and cherry fruit. Spice and perfume also present themselves on the complex and intriguing nose. The palate is so soft and silky yet has great precision and acidity. This is really a great wine with a lot of upside. Give a decade or two. Outstanding. 93+
