Community Tasting Notes 5

    January 4, 2019 - Classically Liger-Belair deep purple. Dark cherry, Vosne spice, and oak-derived coffee & mocha on the nose. Plush, round, mouth-filling flavors of cherry and earth. Finishes dark and brooding. This needs more time and I fear will have a narrow peak drinking window. Drink 2022 - 2027. (Bottle 694 of 1325)

    April 22, 2017 - Lots of great and interesting wines tasted this weekend. This one stands out as the most elegant and sophisticated, not the most complex wine of the weekend but just so beautiful, delicate and perfect. Smooth nose with dark berries, truffles, earth, chocolate and nougat. Silky, creamy and rich mouthfeel filling every last corner of the palate. Impeccable balance and purity, fresh acidity, salty, thick, high but balanced concentration. Aired in decanter for 6 hours. 97p lovely!!!

    August 28, 2016 - A bouquet of black cherries, roast squab, Vosne-like spice, incipient dark soil tones and a framing of lovely new oak introduces a sappy, intense, concentrated and expansive wine with beautiful balance and structure. Quite how good this was surprised me.

    April 7, 2016 - Nice nose and earthiness with complex finish. Elegant for a Nuits St George.

    April 7, 2016 - From the Vosne side. This has a sultry and rich nose, round and silky. Interestingly the spice note is different than neighboring wines - more cardamom, gives it a sense of exoticism.
