FRANKREICH BURGUND

FRANKREICH BURGUND Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair ANBEI NOCH EIN PAAR ZITATE, DIE WIR GERNE ZUM 2017ER LA ROMANÉE VON COMTE LIGER-BELAIR BEIFÜGEN MÖCHTEN: „Der 2017er La Romanée Grand Cru, der dieses Jahr einen Rappenanteil von rund 15% besitzt, hat eines der größten Understatement-Bouquets, die ich bislang bei diesem Monopolwein bemerkt habe (ähnlich wie beim La Tâche)… eine makellose Qualität, die mich an den Superlativ 2006 erinnert, den ich vor kurzem probiert habe. Er ist sehr langanhaltend am Gaumen und extrem rein, aber kein Angeber. Wunderbar. “- Neal Martin (Vinous) „Dieses leicht herbe Prachtstück ist zurückhaltend und cool, kann aber seine offensichtliche Klasse nicht verbergen. In der Summe spielt dieser großartige Wein einfach auf einer anderen Ebene. – Allen Meadows (Burghound) „Der 2017er La Romanée Grand Cru beeindruckt durch sein extravagantes Bouquet aus Cassis, Veilchen, dunkler Schokolade, Espresso-Bohnen, süßen Gewürzen, Orangenschale und Hagebutte, welches seine üppige Umrahmung von neuem Holz so vollständig integriert hat wie kein anderer Wein im Keller Comte Liger-Belairs. Am Gaumen ist er vollmundig, üppig und samtig mit einem tiefen, saftigen Kern aus konzentrierten Früchten, der seine breiten strukturellen Schultern weitgehend verbirgt und mit einem durchdringend intensiven, nur subtil holzbeeinflussten Abgang endet. Das hier hat das Zeug zu einem vergleichsweise frühreifen Jahrgang von La Romanée, der ein breites Trinkfenster bieten wird. “ – William Kelley (Parker) 18

Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair BURGUND FRANKREICH INTERNATIONALE KRITIKERSTIMMEN WILLIAM KELLEY, PARKER: „ It's a pretty vintage at this address, yielding a range of supple and succulent wines which are true to the domaine's sensuous house style, and which will give pleasure in their youth.“ ALLEN MEADOWS‘ BURGHOUND: „Louis-Michel Liger-Belair told me that the 2017 “growing season was really pretty straightforward and certainly much easier than that of 2016. First there was no early season frost and second, there was no attack of mildew that was so hard to fight because of how wet the vineyards were at the time. In 2017 though the very warm and dry summer was well behaved as it were and other than some rain in the second half of August that had the effect of swelling the berries, the conditions were clement. The fruit was clean and ripe and as such the vinifications were straightforward. I selectively employed varying amounts of whole clusters depending on the ripeness levels. In the end, I think there were really only two keys to making good wines in 2017. The first was to control yields as the vines were quite productive after the low yields of 2016. As such, it was necessary to drop excess fruit through a green harvest. Secondly, I think that it was a bad idea to push the élevage period for too long as the wines risk drying out. As such I will bottle my 2017s earlier than usual. Overall, my sense is that 2017 is a good to perhaps very good vintage that will be best suited to mid-term keeping.”“ NEAL MARTIN, VINOUS: „I have followed his journey since he took over the running of his family’s historic estate back in 2001 and transformed it into one of the leading producers. It is now firmly ensconced in the highest echelons of Burgundy…As one expects these days, the 2017s from Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair are beautifully sculpted. They are not as powerful or perhaps as complex as the 2015s or 2016s, although Louis-Michel’s astute decision in terms of moderating yields and picking date have ensured that the wines are imbued with freshness and the necessary acidity to maintain balance. There is a smooth sheen to these wines, which are quite sensual and sumptuous in style. Yes, the 2017 La Romanée is bewitching, though none but the richest can now afford it, even if you can find it. But there is plenty elsewhere, including a sublime Nuits Saint-Georges Aux Cras and a dashing Vosne-Romanée Aux Reignots vying with Les Suchots for supremacy.“ 19
