Notes La Romanée, a grand cru vineyard in Burgundy's Vosne-Romanée region, is the smallest AOC in France. It covers just 0.8 hectares (2 acres) of land on the hillside above the famed Romanée-Conti vineyard, and the village of Vosne-Romanée itself. La Romanée is a monopole of Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair, which makes a single Pinot Noir from the tiny vineyard.

Domaine du Comte Liger Belair
Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair may be seen as a recent domaine as it was established only in the year 2000 by Louis-Michel Liger-Belair. However, in reality, Louis-Michel is just renewing two hundred years of family tradition dedicated to the vines and wines of Burgundy.
The Domaine currently applies the principles of ‘lutte raisonnée’ or sustainable agriculture, tending towards organic farming, notably for the end of year treatments. Louis-Michel believes that once the grapes are put on the sorting table at the entry to the winery, 95 percent of the work has been done. The remaining five percent is not a recipe but the application of certain basic principles, a dose of intuition, and an understanding of each vintage.

Beautifully perfumed with layers of violets, roses and jasmine flowers. The palate has wonderful density and depth combining the structure of a grand cru with fruitiness, ripeness and generosity of flavors.
