For a 2003 this is quite fresh. Full-bodied, very ripe fruit. Typical Vosne-nose. Great class for an "ordinary" village (Vosne is of course NOT ordinary...). What I like most is the freshness of this wine, really lovely for a 2003.
The most Californian Burgundy I have ever had. Jammy berry fruit (though not gloppy in its proportions) with a cola/root beer flavor. Even though I didn't like this much I am almost tempted to buy a bottle to hustle blind tastings.

(Comte Liger-Belair Vosne-Romanée Clos du Château) Similar depth of colour to the La Columbière. The nose doesn't shout so loud, but there's lovely depth to the fruit and a slightly more spicy aspect. The palate is a little silkier, not particularly high acidity but there's balance and the finish is still mouthwatering. This is a very tasty wine that reminds Louis-Michel of Chambolle.
