2012 Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair Echezeaux Burgundy - 96 pts!
Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair, founded in 2000, is a relatively new house in Burgundy, although the Liger-Belair family have owned vineyards in Vosne-Romanée since 1815. The domaine makes a range of grand and premier cru wines from vineyards in Nuits-Saint-Georges and Vosne-Romanée, with the tiny monopole of La Romanée providing Comte Liger-Belair's flagship wine. This is truly captivating Burgundy at its very best.

Rating 96 RP - 2012 Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair Echezeaux Burgundy - 96 pts! Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Echezeaux Grand Cru from Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair has a slightly disjointed nose at first, but it melds together nicely in the glass, revealing pure blackberry and raspberry fruit, heather and fresh mint notes with aeration. There is focus and intensity here that builds before you. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, very well-judged acidity, cohesive and voluminous with a very precise finish that indicates some very clever, judicious winemaking. This is an Echezeaux from the top drawer, confirming previous bottles that have excelled. RP

Interestingly this is the spiciest wine in the range outside of the La Romanée that combines with a really lovely panoply of red and blue fruit and floral scents. There is excellent volume and mid-palate concentration to the fleshy and generous medium-bodied flavors that possess controlled power on the beautifully complex, balanced and long finish that is a bit less austere than that of the Reignots. This is also excellent and should drink well both young and fully mature.
