La Romanée, Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair 2008

Tasting Notes

This is turning out to be even slightly better than I originally thought with its gorgeously complex, elegant, pure and refined nose that feature ample amounts of spice to the cool red currant and plum aromas. The highly sophisticated and silky textured medium-bodied flavors possess an abundance of dry extract that buffers the dense but fine tannins on the balanced and superbly persistent finish that still exhibits a touch of youthful austerity. This really opens on the finish with simply marvelous breadth and overall this is a magnificent wine of class and indisputable grace. Moreover I would enthusiastically nominate this as one of the wines of the vintage.
